A Note From Rachel
Hello, my name is Rachel Lewis. I am excited about the opportunities at Olsen’s and looking forward to working with all of you and your livestock operations. I grew up in Eastern Washington riding and showing horses. In addition, we raised registered Charolais cattle. I’m one of those “show life” kids, if you could lead it we took it in a show ring while I was growing up. Also, my family also owned and operated an animal health company serving the Northwest.
I am a graduate of Washington State University with a degree in Agricultural Economics. Upon graduation from college, I went to work in a feed yard. My duties included riding pens and doctoring cattle, as well as managing their feed department. I’ve lived in the Tucson area for about 3 years now. Before finding my way to Purina and Olsen’s I worked in Animal Health Distribution. In addition to working closely with Olsen’s knowledgeable staff, my responsibilities are to serve our horse and cattle customers.
We welcome Rachel into Olsen’s family and look forward to our customers benefiting from the services she offers.
