Colleen OlsonRegistrar/Admin Assistant Front Office
I graduated from Washington State University with a BA and went to work in Seattle as a Clothing Buyer, which was my dream! This career eventually took me to Portland where I met and married my husband. When we decided to have children, I had to end my career as a buyer due to the hours and travel. I worked part-time as an executive assistant to the Director of the Japanese Garden Society of Oregon until my husband was transferred back to the Seattle/Everett area. This is where we settled and have now lived for 18 years. I was lucky enough to stay home and raise my darling daughter, send her to St. Mary Magdalen Catholic school and become a part of the SMM community. In my spare time, I love to cook and putter in the garden. Most evenings I can be found relaxing with my 20 lb cat on my lap!
