Karryn Olson

Operations and Finance Manager (part time)

Nomad ~ I have a business coaching "entrepreneurs who are allergic to usual", and discovering the Wheel and participating in Like A Pro illuminated in new ways the many dynamics in biz that can feel gross - and embodied ways to shift them. Systematisation, growth, and transitions of businessess are all in my wheelhouse, and when I joined the School of Consent in my part-time position, it was because I am enthusiastic to use those skills in service to this organization I admire. If things are running smoothly, you probably won't connect with me, because most of my role here happens behind the scenes so that our faculty can minimize administrative duties and maximize time to tend their deeply transformative work with you.
