Laura Gouin


Laura Gouin (she/her) is a director, writer, and actress who got tired of starving and essentially created the company she wishes would have been around when she was starting out.

Jen Olmos

Training & Development Manager

Jen is the creative mind behind the training and development program here at Satiated Artists, where she merges her creative vision with a deep understanding of business realities. Her professional journey began in the faraway land of fintech, where she honed her analytical and communication skills as a business systems analyst and technical writer. In 2017, driven by her passion for telling stories that have nothing to do with banking apps, she published her first novel and left the corporate world behind for the ever-changing landscapes of indie publishing.

Since joining Satiated in 2019, Jen has dedicated her time to the success of our team. Her job doesn’t end with onboarding; she remains a passionate advocate for our artists, providing continuous development and coaching throughout their client engagements.

Away from her dual desks — one littered with drafts, the other with training plans — Jen indulges in her passions for reading and adventuring in the great outdoors. She lives with her husband, daughter, and their wise, old tabby cat in Milwaukee, WI.
