Olivia is a born and raised Bostonian, never having lived outside of a 15-mile radius of the city. She attended Tufts University for undergrad, where she graduated summa cum laude with a degree in Biology and Community Health and received the Ethel M. Hayes academic award. At Tufts, she enjoyed serving as a TA for the introductory biology course, teaching health classes to high school students, working in various research labs, and participating in a dance group. She went straight from Tufts to Harvard Medical School, where she is studying in the Pathways MD program.
Olivia has been tutoring since high school, where she was in charge of her school’s writing center and tutored biology. Since then, she has served as a TA for introductory biology at Tufts, tutored undergraduate students in biology and community health topics, and helped peers with their medical school applications and personal statements.
In her free time, Olivia enjoys dancing, doing fitness classes, spending time outside, hanging out with friends, and trying new restaurants/cooking new dishes. She is a big Boston sports fan and can’t get enough of the New England beaches in the summer!
