Meet the Team Tuesday: Brinley Olsen
Today we’re getting to know part-time retail team member, Brinley Olsen! This is Brinley’s first summer at FTT, but her second in Seward, and she’s loving every minute of her time in town! When she’s not working with us, you can likely find her on a Major Marine Tours boat where she works as a deckhand.
Brinley hails from Utah, where she’s currently attending Utah State University, studying Fisheries & Aquatics – what a cool degree! In the future, Brinley hopes to become a marine biologist and a captain and is even getting ready to spend next summer in Australia doing marine research. It’s safe to say that Brinley is a huge fan of wildlife, especially marine life.
In her free time, Brinley loves getting outside, and the beauty of Alaska really appeals to her. She spends time hiking, fishing, tide pooling, collecting sea shells, kayaking, camping, and running. Brinley even recently took place in a mountain race, she can do it all!
When it comes to the products that we sell here at FTT, Brinley’s favorite brands are Salmon Sisters and Salomon, both of which offer top-tier products. For Salmon Sisters, Brinley loves all of the varied and cute designs, as well as the fact that the materials are durable and comfortable to wear. For Salomon, Brinley finds that they tend to be her favorite hiking and trail running shoes because of the support and grip they offer.
We know it’s unfair, but, for her fun fact, we asked Brinley to pick a favorite marine animal, and her response was quick – the orca! Brinley is a really talented photographer and uses her time on boats to hone her skills. Next time you stop by, be sure to ask to see some of Brinley’s incredible orca shots!
