Dr. Olmstead grew up in Bellevue, Washington. She attended Occidental College in Los Angeles where she received her bachelor of arts in biology in 1986. She was thrilled to move back to the northwest to attend the University of Washington School of Medicine. She moved to Oregon in 1990 and completed her obstetrics and gynecology residency at Oregon Health & Science University. She is certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology and has been in practice with Women's Healthcare Associates since 1994. Her clinical interests include obstetrics, domestic violence, adolescent gynecology, pelvic surgery and international medical missions, among others.
Dr. Olmstead and her husband have been married since 1986. They experienced the miracle of birth first hand when their son was born in 1996, and again with their daughter in 1999. Dr. Olmstead enjoys spending time with family and friends, running, snow skiing, and traveling.
