Jen Olson of Sturgeon Bay originally studied biology at St. Norbert College, although she didn’t think working out of a lab was in her long-term future. Olson’s career path changed when she took an after school job.
With her career path now set on dentistry, Jen Olson got her bachelor’s degree and was accepted into Marquette University’s four-year dental program. Olson says anyone considering dentistry should know it’s not like a traditional college environment.
Now as Dr. Jen Olson, DDS, she says all of the schooling and all of the expense have been more than worth it to help the people of her hometown feel good about themselves.
Dr. Olson says a sense of altruism is part of a career she loves.
