Coach Bio

Hello!

My name is Olivia. I originally completed my HBSc at the University of Toronto with majors in Neuroscience and Psychology, and have worked at The Hospital for Sick Children in Genetics since then. During my time between my undergraduate degree and medical school, I also returned to UofT to study Theatre, Literature, and Film. I love teaching, and passing knowledge onto others, and have also been very fortunate to work as a teaching assistant in Statistics since 2016.

I know how much uncertainty there can be in the medical school application and interview process, and the incredible difference it makes to have support along the way! I joined as a MedCoach student to develop the skills necessary to confidently enter interviews, and it made all the difference. With every coaching session, I could feel myself growing as an applicant, learning strategies that I could apply to questions I was given during interviews. I hope to be able to pass these skills onto the next cohort of medical school applicants, so they too can feel ready to tackle whatever the interview throws at them! I’m thankful to have had opportunities to interview at schools across Canada, and to be able to speak to the similarities and differences amongst them.

I’m currently in UofT’s MD Program, with a particular interest in the genetics of neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism. I’m also very passionate about the intersection of medicine and the arts, in particular, the representation of the body and disability in theatre and film. In my free time, I love running, playwriting and screenwriting, and staying connected with friends and family 🙂

    Olivia was very helpful with my essays in the first session. She was well-prepared before the session and included very helpful written feedback in addition to the live meeting. She has a great understanding of what the med school may want to see in your essays, and really spent time understanding my application materials. I will not hesitate to recommend her to anyone else who needs help on application reviews!

    Olivia is friendly and knowledgeable! Her feedback on my ABS was very thoughtful. She provided many concrete examples, and I left the session with more insight on how to improve my application. I have worked with many med students in the past, but this is the most thorough feedback I have ever received. Thank you, Olivia!!
