Amy Olsen, M.A., Lecturer

Amy OlsenA graduate of Eastern Kentucky University (B.A. 1995) and Northern Arizona University (M.A. 1997), Amy Olsen begins her third year teaching Physical Activity and Wellness.  Following a successful coaching career in collegiate athletics, Olsen shifted her coaching talents from competitive performance to lifelong wellness. “Wellness across the lifespan is really my passion and as my coaching career evolved from NCAA Division I athletics to Division III athletics, where the student focus was more on life experience than competition, I became more entrenched in how I can make a difference in the lives and well-being of athletes than chasing the next championship,” she says. A lecturer in WPA 101, Olsen's goal is to reach all students in understanding and improving their whole person wellness.
