Incident Command / Training Coordinator
Brie Olender came from a small island (Martha's Vineyard) with a drive to bring a little hope into this world. She graduated with a Bachelors and Masters degree in Accounting from Western New England University in Springfield, MA. Currently, she works at Sikorsky Aircraft as a Financial Analyst and she loves to help pioneer flight solutions that brings people home everywhere every time.
When she joined EARS she quickly showed her commitment to the organization and her strengths as a responder, and that led her to become a key member of the EARS Leadership Team. She is currently an Incident Commander - meaning that she is fully trained, certified, and capable of running her own response team when multiple teams are needed - and she is also a Training Coordinator - working closely with other members of the Leadership Team to help develop and implement training for both new and senior members on the team.
Brie has a passion of rebuilding her jeep and spending time with her family. She currently has two small Alaskan Klee Kai (mini-husky) Kali & Kobi and one patient husband Bill. When she has spare time she plays Softball & Volleyball along side of helping any rescue animal needed.
