Becky Olson, CN-BA
Becky has spent most of her life in sales. She started her sales career in her 20’s, first in the film industry where she sold movies to independent and major theater chains, then moved to Tupperware where she could be a stay at home mom for her new and growing family. Eventually Becky went back to work in the advertising industry for a multibillion-dollar company.
Becky believes in Thinking Big! When she was diagnosed with advanced stage breast cancer in 1996, she started envisioning the possibility of doing something to help others who are battling cancer. In 2000, she and her friend, Sharon Henifin, decided to start a non-profit called Breast Friends. Becky was a four-time survivor of advanced stage breast cancer, but in October 2018, was diagnosed for the fifth time. She is now fighting her 5th battle, this time with stage 4 metastatic disease. She believes in “Staying in the Light,” and is living proof that obstacles don’t have to stop you from succeeding in life.
Becky has been married for nearly 40 years. She and her husband, Bill, have five children and four grandchildren. They reside in Portland, Oregon with their dog, Swayze.
