Such an absolute honor to have you on Playboy! What are your plans for the last half of the year? 2022 has been fantastic so far starting with the cover of FHM Canada in May and now this Playboy cover is a dream come true. I would love to get another publication or two and travel more Internationally.

What is at the top of your list to achieve the most this year? Expand my business to be able to change more lives.

What does it mean for you to be seen as a strong, intelligent, ambitious woman? It means a lot. I’ve worked hard for everything I have achieved, and I don’t apologize to anyone for being ambitious and a good businesswoman. The better I am at my craft, the more I can help others. 

What would you say makes you stand out in the industry? I am extremely professional and a perfectionist but I am very caring and detail-oriented at the same time never letting efficiency take over the personal touch. I treat every project as if it was my only project. 

Where are we most likely to find you if not in front of the camera being glamorous? I can often be found immersed in a good book on the beach, poolside worshipping the sun or working on my fitness goals. That is if I am not hopping on an airplane, bound for my next adventure! 

What are some of your biggest passions? I have many passions… Including world travel, so far, I have visited 94 countries, enjoying exquisite cuisine and wine, going to the theater and concerts, lavishly spoiling my 4 rescue dogs, volunteering and supporting charities that are close to my heart and contributing kindness and compassion to everyone I meet. 

3 ultimate deal-breakers when it comes to men? Rudeness, lies, being close-fisted.

What are some of the things that attract you to a man? Generosity, intelligence, and a man that keeps his word.

Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years? I am very passionate about animal rescue. I would like to have a sanctuary for older, sick, and special needs pets that are usually left behind in the shelters so they could receive not just the appropriate care but all the love and attention they deserve until their last days. 

What is the wrong way to approach you as an admirer? With entitlement, arrogance and taking my time and attention for granted.

Where can our readers catch up with you and stay updated with your work? My Twitter @TheOliviaLush and Instagram @theolivialush.

We are so happy to have gotten to know you a little bit! Any last words out there for our readers? This pandemic has shown us that life can be short and not to leave the important things and what we want to do for later because we don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow. Don’t leave your happiness for some time in the future. Do the things you want to do now.
