We are a startup passionate about women's health.
What do you get when you put two doctors, a designer and an engineer together? Awkward party conversation. Our mission is to help women take back The Pill. With feedback from real women on The Pill, Oviary was designed to fit into a woman's life. It’s not an annoying alarm. It’s much more than just an app.
Olivia Schenck, MD
Olivia is currently a dermatology resident at Northwestern University, who is excited about using technology to help improve patient adherence to the Pill. She is a women’s health and education advocate with a strong interest in vulnerable populations, especially after her experiences volunteering through Princeton University and conducting public health research in Guatemala through the University of Virginia School of Medicine. When Olivia met Steve and Ed, she knew that this would be the perfect combination to tackle such an important, pressing issue for all young women.
Ed Tung, BArch
Ed is a professional architect who moonlights as a designer. Ed and Steve went to high school together. They liked each other so much that they went to college together at Rice University. Ed was the creative one so he received a degree in Architecture. He was brought on the team to make Oviary beautiful.
Steve Xu, MD
A food-loving, bicycle riding, overly excited project manager. Steve previously worked in management consulting, venture capital and two other medical device startups. He occasionally sees patients as a doctor. He is passionate about helping people take their medications better.
Jessica Walter, MD
From working in Peru as a patient educator to Harvard Medical School, Jessie has always been passionate about women's health. Currently a resident in Obstetrics and Gynecology, she founded Oviary with the goal of making The Pill work better for the modern woman. As a long term birth control user herself, she knows how scary it can be when a dose is missed. She needed an engineer to deliver on her vision and found one in her medical school classmate, Steve.
