Kathy Olson

About Kathy: Kathy Olson is a dedicated professional with a diverse background. Over the years, she has successfully owned and operated two businesses. In 1998, Kathy obtained a State of  Wisconsin Licensed Home Inspector certification and started her first business in that field. She maintained the license until 2006 when it expired due to her inability to dedicate the necessary time for continuing education.  In 2002, Kathy embarked on another entrepreneurial venture by starting a business to assist her uncle in operating a fleet of Non-Emergency Specialized Medical Vehicles. Her commitment and hard work eventually led her to acquire her uncle's business, and she successfully operated it until deciding to close in the summer of 2008.  Following the closure of her second business, Kathy pursued a career in the medical field. She began by obtaining a Basic EMT License and embarked on her journey towards earning an Associate of Applied Science (Paramedic Technician), which she accomplished in the spring of 2013. In 2010, she completed an EMT Intermediate Tech Course and National Registration of Emergency Medical Technician (NREMT) testing required after the coursework, as well as an Accredited Phlebotomy course.
