The foundation’s trustees, scientific advisers and staff are all extremely grateful for Dr. Olson’s contributions.”

Olson joined Morris Animal Foundation as its executive director in 2004. She was named president and CEO the following year.

“It has truly been a pleasure to work with the Morris Animal Foundation team,” Olson said. “I am proud of all that we have accomplished together on behalf of animals, and I am confident that the foundation will continue to grow and to create a healthier tomorrow for animals.” <HOME>
