My family has played a large role in my life and truly has made me who I am today. My parents, Mick and Mary Olson, have been married for almost 25 years. My dad works at Northern Ag Services as a grain merchandiser. My mom is a vision paraprofessional for Keystone Education Agency. Both of my parents have been very supportive in everything we kids do. Their hobbies usually consist of attending our events but when they find a free day, they like to get in nine holes on the golf course or spend an afternoon kayaking down the river.
My sister, Megan, is 23 years old and recently graduated from Coe College in Cedar Rapids. She teaches 8th grade math at the College Community School District. Megan and I are a lot alike and are really close friends. She loves to be active and enjoys almost any sport. I love getting a free weekend and having the chance to go stay with her in Cedar Rapids.
My brother, Bob, is 17 years old and is a senior in high school. He will be attending Iowa State next fall. I am so excited for him to be a Cyclone! Bob loves playing sports as well as video games. He has a crazy sense of humor and always keeps us entertained!
Our dog Bailey is an Australian Sheppard and has been around for awhile now. She is a very quiet dog but when she does get a little wound up, she has the innocent face to get out of almost anything. We also have a new addition to the family. We just got a new puppy, Bruce! He is also an Aussie and is the cutest little pup! He loves to play tug-of-war.
