She left there to start her own firm called Man In Space and developed a line of glow in the dark sneakers for Converse Shoes as well as various other graphic art projects including book illustration.
A unique and valued relationship shared with the original Cast members of the Brady Bunch led to Olsen Executive producing "Brady Bunch Home Movies" a prime time television special for CBS.
