Katelyn Olson

Assistant Director of People & Culture

A native Vermonter who grew up thinking she wanted to be a teacher, Katelyn pursued a BA in French before life took a turn that landed her in Human Resources instead. Throughout her career, she’s worked in various HR roles at iconic Vermont businesses including Vermont Teddy Bear and Magic Hat. Katelyn appreciates that her diverse experiences have allowed her to contribute in ways within and beyond the traditional reach of Human Resources, including being top phone salesperson during the Valentine’s Day rush of 2006; contributing to a year-long culture change initiative; becoming Six Sigma Green Belt certified; and designing an award-winning employee recognition program.

Joining City Market in 2019, Katelyn brings her passion for local food and sustainable food systems to her work on the People and Culture Team. She lives in Shelburne with her husband, daughter, and 2 cats. In her spare time, Katelyn enjoys reading, listening to podcasts, and figuring out how to use up the vegetables in her fridge.
