About Our Authors: Olivia

Olivia worked as a freelance writer for several years before joining Health and Care. She has lived in London her whole life, earning her BA in Philosophy at King's College London and then an MA in Creative Writing at Goldsmiths College where she was shortlisted for the annual Pat Kavanagh prize. She enjoys airport novels, huge mugs of tea and visiting city farms.

Working at Health and Care has given her an opportunity to indulge her hypochondria and to purchase the electric blanket she’s wanted for such a long time. She looks forward to a future of medical minutiae and toasty warm feet.
