Olivia Burnette (born March 24, 1977) is an American actress.
She began her career at age six. Perhaps her most famous role was that of Dorothy Jane Torkelson on the NBC sitcom The Torkelsons, later renamed Almost Home. She also notably played two different roles on the NBC series Quantum Leap. She made a guest appearance in the episode "Another Mother" before later appearing as Sam's sister Katie in the episode "The Leap Home."
She has had a number of film and TV appearances since then, including appearances on both JAG and its spin-off, NCIS (though playing different characters). Both shows were produced by Donald P. Bellisario, who had also created Quantum Leap.
Burnette also produced the short film, Mountain Cry.
