Consumer Watchdog Director Scott Olsen has traveled the state and the nation advocating for increased patient protections and fighting efforts to limit the rights of people and families harmed by medical malpractice. His late wife, Kathy Olsen, was a Consumer Watchdog Director until 2015. Scott stepped in to carry on her legacy and the fight for patient rights.
Scott and Kathy founded the Steven Andrew Olsen Coalition for Patients’ Rights, after their wonderful son Steven was injured as a result of medical negligence. The Olsen’s story has been told in television and newspaper stories around the nation. Scott was a Senior Editor for a software company before he left his job to care for his son after his wife’s untimely death. He is a graduate of San Diego State University, and presently lives with his son Steven in Chula Vista, California.
