About the Author | Torri Olanski

As an elite athlete for many years, Torri (literally) dove into the world of sports psychology at a young age, which sparked her interest for personal development and coaching. Her creative interests later led her to pursue a degree in Entrepreneurship and Marketing at the University of Houston's Wolff Center for Entrepreneurship. Here, she took her first Birkman assessment and has been analyzing it ever since. Today she is the Content and Innovation Manager at Birkman and is very passionate about celebrating the diversity of personality. A proud Canadian, Torri enjoys travelling to the great white north to spend time with her friends and family.
