Background

Prior to joining BioTeam, Olivia completed her Bachelor’s degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. After college, she moved to San Francisco, CA and took a job at Color Genomics as one of the first Clinical Lab Associates.  Master’s degree in Biochemistry at Virginia Tech. Looking to apply to medical school she worked as a medical scribe, taking notes for doctors in the Emergency Room. However, after a year of working, she realized that becoming a doctor did not match her aspirations. After much thought and soul searching, she applied to a number of coding bootcamps and settled for an asynchronous learning experience. There, she completed ten projects and was able to showcase her work to potential employers.

Olivia loves to read and knit during her free time. Every year she sets a goal to read 100 books, and although never gets to that goal, loves to read as much as she can.
