CBHA Celebrates Staff: 2017 Of the Year Award Recipients

2017 SUPERVISOR OF THE YEAR: Courtney Olson

Originally from the Yakima Valley, it didn’t take long for Courtney Olson to feel at home in Mattawa, where she has served as the site director of the Wahluke Clinic. She will be the first to tell you she “loves her Mattawa crew!”

Past Supervisors of the Year recognized Courtney’s ability to manage financial resources, select and develop talent, lead effective meetings, and use sound judgment in making tough decisions.

Courtney works hard dealing with complex situations to keep both the patients and staff happy, working hard to maintain a positive work culture. Her goal is always to provide the best possible patient care. She also enjoys being active in the community, where she serves on the Board of the Chamber of Commerce.
