Joyce is originally from the Bay Area of California but has lived in Boston for the last decade. At Harvard 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. During college, Joyce began nurturing an interest in teaching after serving as a TA for organic chemistry and biochemistry courses. She graduated summa cum laude and as a junior-elect member of Phi Beta Kappa. Joyce went on to attend Harvard Medical School, where she spent much of her time teaching clinical reasoning, mentoring near-peers, and developing skills to be a future medical educator and researcher. Today, Joyce is an internal medicine resident at Massachusetts General Hospital.
At Cambridge Coaching, Joyce has worked with many students on the MCAT after having scored in the 100% percentile, creating individualized content study plans and guiding students through MCAT strategy. She has also supported several students through medical school admissions and writing, where she loves helping students discover their path, craft that narrative, and effectively share their story.
When not working, Joyce loves to cook up a storm, spoil her taste buds with good food, and look ridiculous dancing it off at Zumba class.
