Dr. Olson is from Ontario, Canada. For seven years, she worked as a land paramedic in Sudbury, Ontario; and, for a year prior to that, as a flight paramedic. She then went on to earn her degree in veterinary medicine from the University of Edinburgh, in Scotland. She holds a strong interest in exotics - especially birds. She really enjoys soft tissue surgery, and wants to expand her knowledge in endoscopy.
At home, Dr. Olson has a diverse brood of her own pets - a rescued Shih-Tzu mix, a 12-year-old Cockatiel, a 6-year-old Senegal Parrot, a 7-year-old Timneh African Grey & two Bearded Dragons. Outside of work, she enjoys crocheting, making toys for her birds, as well as other various do-it-yourself projects.
