Joyce is a Californian whose West Coast pride remains strong even though she has grown to love Boston after four years. In college, Joyce’s academic interests surrounded the anthropology of aging and caregiving, and her thesis earned the Thomas T. Hoopes Prize for outstanding scholarly contribution to the field. She graduated in 2017 summa cum laude and as a junior-elect member of Phi Beta Kappa. Joyce is currently an MD Candidate at Harvard Medical School.
Joyce gained extensive teaching experience as a member of the organic chemistry and biochemistry course staff at Harvard College, teaching pre-medical students in small groups as well as working with them individually. At Cambridge Coaching, Joyce tutors all components of the SAT and MCAT after having scored in the 100% percentile for both tests. Joyce also enjoys helping students improve their expository writing and hone their personal statements. Joyce is particularly skilled at assisting applicants with their medical school applications.
Outside of work, Joyce loves to cook up a storm, spoil her taste buds with good food, and look ridiculous dancing it off at Zumba class.
