founder story

"I was put on this earth to use my gifts to help others."

With 12 years of design experience, Acton Circle founder Olivia Wheeler is a seasoned professional in graphic, web, and UI/UX design. After contributing to and leading design teams across the San Francisco Bay Area, she founded Acton Circle as a way of amplifying social good.

Olivia's expertise in brand strategy and graphic design empowers Acton Circle to craft compelling visual stories that resonate with supporters.

"I have always known that I was put on this earth to use my gifts to help others. The namesake of my studio, Acton Circle, was the location of my grandparents’ house. Their home was a place where my faith and creativity began. I am part of their legacy. I can’t wait to help you build yours."
