Quinn grew up in Milton, Massachusetts, where she spent her time participating in theater and indulging her love of dogs, including more than 15 years dogsledding with her family. At Williams College, she continued to pursue theater while squeezing in a History major in addition to her pre-medical coursework. Quinn did research in human rights, history, biomedical ethics, and biophysical chemistry. She has presented her research in numerous venues and has received several research grants, including one to spend several months in Malta researching refugee policies there. She graduated with Latin honors after completing a thesis in History. During her undergraduate years, Quinn also founded a charitably-focused mobile app company whose flagship app is a trivia game called Sprinkler. After college, she decided to learn more about the business side of medicine before applying to medical school and worked in health care strategy consulting for 2 years. Quinn is currently pursuing her MD at Columbia University, College of Physicians and Surgeons.
Quinn has been engaged in some form of tutoring or teaching for over 10 years, from teaching science classes at an academic summer camp to tutoring undergraduate Physics to training fellow consultants in health care pricing and reimbursement.
In her spare time, you can find Quinn scheming about how to fit a future dog into her apartment and schedule, attending plays, and doing medical research.
