Olson has moved to Venn Strategies after 14 years of working on the Hill for Kind.
Having climbed the ladder in Kindís office, Olson saw an opportunity open at Venn and accepted a position with the firm in September, right before the government shutdown.
Outside the office, Olson has made volunteer work a substantial part of his free time. He has served on the board of Hortonís Kids for six years and as the chairman for three. He has tutored children from the Districtís Ward 8 through the past decade.
Hortonís Kids has allowed him to give back through the tutoring program that takes place inside the Rayburn House Office Building every week while connecting with other Hill staffers.
