Bio

Katherine obtained her undergraduate degree in Classics and Molecular Biology, Summa cum Laude, from Harvard University. Awarded a Harvard Knox Fellowship to study in the United Kingdom for one year, she earned a Master’s degree in Classical Art and Archaeology with Distinction (equivalent of Summa cum Laude) from the University of London. She received her PhD in Ancient History from the Harvard Department of the Classics, and her MD from Harvard Medical School. Currently a resident in diagnostic radiology at one of Harvard Medical School’s teaching hospitals, she is continuing her research in the humanities as a postdoctoral fellow in Harvard’s Program in Science, Religion, and Culture, and is in the process of turning her PhD dissertation into a book.

While in graduate school, Katherine published 18 articles or book chapters with publishers and journals based on three continents, and she has given lectures and presentations in 9 different countries.

While a graduate student at Harvard, Katherine was selected to be a head teaching fellow for a Roman history course with over 160 students, and she was also selected by faculty in the Department of the Classics to independently design the syllabus for and to teach a junior tutorial. She has won teaching awards (based on student feedback) every semester she has taught.

Testimonials
  • Testimonial Citation: 
    "Katie's advice on how to approach these secondary essays was incredible and really helped me focus my thoughts and resume activities into a cohesive response. Her response time was also really great throughout the entire process. She was very helpful for all the writings and especially for the interview prep and I really valued her input. The tutoring was overall invaluable for me during this process. The suggestions and advice for my personal statement and secondary essays was great and significantly improved my applications. The coaches were really helpful and helped me stay calm during this process. They were easily approachable and I felt they really wanted me to succeed. I'm so grateful for all their help."

  • Testimonial Citation: 
    "Katie is thorough, thoughtful, and always makes herself available whenever you need her - even when it seems impossible considering all of the work she does in medicine, research, and tutoring/mentoring. I have worked very hard throughout this process, and I think/hope that may have allowed for such a productive and positive working relationship between me and Katie. I am really passionate about going to medical school and becoming the best physician I can be, and Katie understood that and pushed me to achieve my highest potential. I really can't imagine Katie doing anything more or better than she has done for me in so many capacities! (i.e. MCAT studies, AMCAS app support, interview prep...etc.)" (Emily, MCAT & MD Admissions)
