Get to know me

I've lived in many places around the world (Norway, Ethiopia, Jordan, Russia, and the list goes on). Currently though, you can find me in a serene Black Forest town in southwestern Germany, learning my sixth language and hiking as often as I can. 


Olson Linguistics got its start when I transitioned from being a New York-based linguist to a fulltime freelancer. After studying and working with languages for years, it was a natural transition for me to embark on what has become an exciting and fulfilling career as an English Consultant & Linguistic Specialist, providing editing, translation, and language support.


Nearly a decade of living around the world and learning the languages and cultures I encountered along the way have provided the experiences that make me uniquely qualified for and highly passionate about my work.

Finding the right linguist for your unique needs can be tricky -  you want an experienced professional who's both easy to work with and highly capable.

You've come to the right place.
