Hometown: Rogersville, Mo.

Family: Husband Chris

In Town: Kinsey Olson, of Rogersville, Mo., has always had a passion for women’s health and wellness. Her career began as a postpartum nurse, and continued through her nursing work in OB/GYN, holistic health, pediatrics and neonatal ICU. 

This knowledge from working with her patients, along with personal experiences with wellness and starting a family, inspired her to found Motherland Birth Co., two years ago, where she is a full-time registered nurse, birth and postpartum doula, and women’s wellness, hormone and fertility nurse coach.

In the Country: Kinsey grew up exploring and foraging on a small plot of land in Ozark, Mo. Her outdoor experiences encouraged her to continue to seek out the peace and enjoyment that comes with caring for the land. In 2017, she and her husband, Chris, started a small backyard farm in Springfield, Mo., complete with two gardens and half a dozen chickens. 

In 2019, they moved to their 3.5 acre homestead in Rogersville, Mo., and have expanded their farm to include more chickens, ducks, Nigerian Dwarf goats and pigs. The poultry on the Olson Homestead provide eggs for Kinsey and Chris, and their pigs are raised for pork.

Balancing Both: Kinsey said time management strategies and creating space for her own health and wellness journey is key to balancing both her town and country jobs. She also explained both of her jobs complement each other quite well, which helps her balance both. 

“Something I am passionate about is using the things we’ve been given on this earth to help heal us and to care about our food sources and their sustainability,” she said. “I teach this often with my clients. So, getting to do that for my own family with our homestead is really important.”
