Linda Olsen is one of the owners of Scampers, and is most often seen at the Kirkland shop, although many of the Bellevue pooches know her too.
Born in Denmark, raised in New England, and "finished" in Vancouver, BC, Linda moved to Redmond in 2010 when she and her sister, Stina, founded Scampers in Kirkland.
Linda has been an interior decorator, a retail sales manager, an executive secretary, and a business owner. She has worked in many fields over the years - project management in municipal and construction engineering, and business administration in the coffee franchising world, but she's happiest working with the pooches of Scampers and their fantastic humans, and everyone at Scampers.
Much of Linda's off-time is spent in crafty pursuits, making jewelry and accessories using beads, polymer clay, and precious metal clay. She also enjoys concocting essential oil blends and finding fun ways to use them, and occasionally reaching into her heritage to create traditional smorgasbord feasts for her friends and family - pickled herring, schnapps, and all!
