Who we are


Kate Olson

Content Manager and Writer

Kate Olson is an experienced content manager as well as a published writer in both web and print, including magazine, newspaper, blog, and social media writing. She grew up on a steady diet of Nancy Drew and Agatha Christie and loved getting lost in the adventure of each new mystery. Eventually, that love of reading led to a love of writing and creating stories of her own.

Her high school journalism class opened up a whole new aspect of the writing world which guided her to pursue a college degree in journalism and communication. After completing her final semester as an intern with CBS Network's public relations department in NY, NY, she felt the need to go on one more summer adventure before becoming a full-fledged city-dwelling, working adult.

Fast forward 20 years later, and her summer adventure turned her into a South Dakota small town girl with an outdoor-loving husband, three beautiful children, and their loyal black lab Sawyer. One thing that didn't change was her love of writing which brought her to Hydration, and eight years of experience later, she thoroughly enjoys writing in the digital space!

She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication and Media Studies from Montclair State University, Montclair, New Jersey.



"Kate played such an important role in helping Love Justice successfully undergo a total rebranding and name change. By correctly understanding the extreme sensitivity and importance of our work, she was able to use her creative writing skills to not only help the reader come to understand the problem, but more importantly, she was able to help motivate them to become part of the solution."
