Born in Santa Monica, California, Olsen came from a family of actors, and three of her other siblings work in front the camera. At the early age of 14 months old, Olsen was already appearing in various commercials, and at the age of 5 she has already a couple of cameo roles under her belt. Some of the projects she did include “Gunsmoke”, “Julia”, “Ironside” and even worked with Elvis Presley in his movie “The Trouble with Girls”. Although these bit roles already helped get her young career going, and her wealth as well, her real break came when she turned 8 years old.

While attending Wilbur Avenue Elementary School, Olsen auditioned for an upcoming comedy television show “The Brady Bunch”. Olsen got the part of the youngest daughter of what would become one of the most well-known families in American television. The show ran for just five seasons, but its theme of family values became a hit among audiences and went into syndication in 1975. The success of “The Brady Bunch” also placed Olsen in the spotlight, now known to be one of the best child actresses of her time. The show also helped her net worth tremendously.

After “The Brady Bunch”, Olsen attended William Howard Taft Charter High School and also honed her acting skills in the Hollywood Professional School. Even though she was studying, because of the popularity of “The Brady Bunch”, Olsen along with the other members of the show went on to create several reunion specials including a spin-off series “The Brady Bunch Hour”, which only lasted for a season, and a number of made-for-television movies like “The Brady Girls Get Married” (1981) and “The Brady Brides” (1981). Her inclusion in these reunion projects also increased her wealth.

After her era of being a Brady, Olsen pursued her passion for the arts. She became a graphic artist working for various designers, until she created her own company, Man In Space, in which she developed a sneaker that glows in the dark for the shoe company Converse. Her works as an artist like “Fluffart” and “The Art of Rescue” have also been featured in various galleries and fund raisers.

In 1995, Olsen became part of a morning radio show with Ken Ober entitled “Ober and Olsen” at the radio station KLSX. She also returned in television and appeared in various shows like “Space Ghost Coast to Coast”, “Larry King Live” and “Gimme My Reality Show” to name a few. In 2009 she also released a coffee table book “Love to Love You Bradys: the Bizarre Story of The Brady Bunch Variety Hour”, a satirical look back on the show that made her a star. All of her other endeavours also helped in maintaining her net worth and visibility.

In terms of her personal life, Olsen has been married to comedian Chris Fonseca since 2009. Olsen has one son, a product of her previous marriage to Mitch Markwel(1995-2004). She was also married to Steve Ventimiglia(1988-90). Susan is a known advocate for people who deal with migraine, Asperger syndrome, and also works with Precious Paws, a rescue group for animals.
