Olsen started playing rugby when she was 18 after attending a practice in college and hailing rugby players as some of her "favorite kind of people". She also played volleyball and soccer in high school.

At the University of Michigan, Olsen was a Collegiate All-American in 2015 and 2016 and also earned a nomination to the Collegiate Rugby Championship Dream Team in 2016. In 2017, she was chosen as Big 10 back of the year and appeared in three USA Falcons development tournaments including a five-match exhibition series with Australia, Super Sevens Brisban and Okinawa Invitational 2018.

Also in 2018, Olsen helped the San Diego Surfers claim a Club Sevens National Championship. Later that year she made her debut in the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series home-stop in Glendale, CO. There, she scored a monumental try at fulltime to help the USA qualify for the Cup Final. They took home silver.
