About Me

So you want to know more about me, eh?

Well, I'm tempted to just have a bio that reads, Randi Kay Olsen: I do all of the things, all of the time. And though it is impossible to make such a claim, it's how I feel most days.

I delight in learning new things, seeing new places, overcoming new challenges, connecting with people in new ways. This is why I do all that I do. Fulfillment doesn't come to me by staying in one place, doing the same thing everyday. And so I travel. I write. I work in an industry that requires me to keep learning and growing and connecting.

Nitty gritty facts that might interest you:

In 2008, I graduated from Healing Mountain Massage School in Salt Lake City, UT, and I've had my own massage practice ever since.

In 2009, I became a Registered Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance through the Marianne Wells Yoga School in Costa Rica and still teach public and private classes.

In 2011, I graduated with honors from Utah State University with a BA in English, Creative Writing Emphasis.

Currently, my day job is managing the Massage Therapy Program at a career college here in town, teaching classes and administrating. I absolutely love it. I love that my day job has everything to do with one of my biggest passions.

On the side, I play folk music with two different bands, perform with a local improv group, freelance write and edit for various publications, run Randi Kay Healing Arts and Lifeuprooted.com, and travel the world whenever I can.

Other, more different facts to know:

I'm originally from Fargo, and I moved back here in 2012, but in between I lived in 4 states and 3 countries.

I've traveled to 12 different foreign lands, but my list is never ending.

My lifelong goal is to build a yurt in my backyard that will serve as my sanctuary for massage and yoga.

Favorite color is green. Favorite author is Tolkien. Favorite foods are pasta and leafy greens. Dogs over cats. Tea over coffee. Real books over eBooks. Briefs over boxers. Long walks on the beach.
