My name is Jennifer Olson, born in La Crosse, WI and graduated from Logan High School in 1997. I did also live in New Hampshire from1986 to 1993 with my parents. After high school I went into the US Army and was stationed in Okinawa, Japan which is where my 21-year-old son Rylee was born. Rylee just left his employment at City Brewery and is starting his new endeavor with Reinhart Foods. I have another son Zachary, 20-years old, who was adopted out to a wonderful woman in Delavan, Wisconsin in an open adoption. Zachary is currently attending UW Stout and majoring in Psychology. I also have a 12-year-old daughter, Abriella (Abby), who is with me 100% of the time and attends Logan Middle School. My daughter and I have a black and white cat named Blackbeard.
In January 2004, I started my path to obtain a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice from Viterbo University and completed that journey in August of 2007. Some of my career adventures over the years include Goodwill, LHI, Coulee Region RSVP, 3PAdministrators, which was bought out by BPA in 2017, and Innovative Services. I am very excited to have been chosen to join the wonderful team at Catholic Charities as a Live By Coordinator. I have heard many delightful things about this organization, and I cannot wait to see where this new chapter in my life goes!
