MEET THE OLSONS
I have been blessed with children my whole life. This is my family today…Haley on my right, Liam on my lap…and Alyssa to my left.
Both Alyssa and Haley are honor students and work part time. Haley made Cheerleader at Weber HS as a sophomore after being on the team at NOJH and has danced competitively for 8 years. Alyssa graduated from HS at 16 with honors and after a year off is getting ready to start Weber State.
In a previous marriage I raised two boys, Erik and Chad in Northern California. Both graduated from college in San Diego. Today Erik is married to Cathy, a brilliant digital marketing innovator and trainer. They oversee my two granddaughters Aven and Mazie. Chad has been a successful model and actor in Hollywood since college and continues to advance his work..
My family means everything to me…my life’s greatest work!
As a retired single parent, I run a household raising these two teenage daughters. I know firsthand how this pandemic has affected families. Food budgets, medical services, school fees, transportation costs, taxes, etc. are all going up while confidence in our government is shrinking.
There are many families like ours here in Weber County and we are concerned about our future. Runaway government spending, unconstitutional mandates, out-of-control inflation, and government's growing disrespect for our inalienable rights has awakened many of us.
