She loves outdoor adventures, home cooking, live music and travel. She came to Tahoe for the beautiful landscape and quickly fell in love with this mountain community.

Jamie Olson

Operations Director

Jamie is a Tahoe City native who has lived and worked in the North Lake Tahoe community for over 30 years. Though she has studied at various institutions, she feels the most valuable and significant knowledge has come from living life with awareness and intention while also helping others through volunteering, non-profit work, and community collaboration. She loves learning and has a deep appreciation for nature, gardening, and art.
