About Me

I am a first generation college graduate and the first in my family to attend medical school. I grew up in a rural and medically underserved part of Washington and have lived in Washington most of my life. When applying to medical schools, my dream was to be able to train near my home and serve my community.

My medical school journey

I have been greatly honored in being given the opportunity to complete my undergraduate medical education in the same community that fostered me.

Being part of WSU’s College of Medicine has given me the chance to directly impact patient care in what essentially is my second hometown,” says Olson.

I hope that my time here has been as meaningful to our community partners as it has been to me.

Hopes & Aspirations

I hope to return to Washington after residency training in order to continue to serve my community.
