​How long you have been with Olson Insurance:
I started working at Olson Insurance in 1991 and took over ownership in 1996. It has been a pleasure providing my community with quality service over the last two decades!
About me
I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, hailing originally from Woodburn, Oregon. After high school I went off to college in Corvallis, attending Oregon State University for four years – Go Beavs! I have been married to my husband Greg, who is a retired sheriff, for the last 31 years. Together we have a 27-year-old son, Garrett, and three dogs, Maggie, Ginger, and Jasper. In my free time I like to watch sports and go shopping whenever I have the chance. Although I love almost everything about Oregon, my favorite vacation spot is the Big Island of Hawaii to escape the Portland rain.

About me
Born and raised in Oregon where there are endless amounts of green grass and trees, there’s no place like home. I graduated from U of O in 1994 with a degree in Business. I have 3 daughters who keep me busy with their extracurricular activities: soccer, basketball, piano, and I am currently teaching my girls how to play tennis. I love to go to concerts and sporting events and I am trying to learn the game of golf, which takes a lot of patience.
