She has since become the spokesperson for Baby Quest, a foundation that raises money for those who cannot afford infertility treatments. In 2013, Olivo landed the recurring role of former model and strict mother Mrs. Rivas on "Degrassi: The Next Generation". She also appeared in the "Chicago Fire" (NBC 2012-) spinoff "Chicago PD" as the wife of Detective Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda).
