Olesya Simonova, RN, MSN

Registered Nurse in Boston Allergy Group, Newton, MA; Family Nurse Practitioner Candidate 2022; MGH Institute of Health Professions
Ms. Simonova was born and raised in Kerch, Crimea, Ukraine. She earned her Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts degrees in philology and education in Sevastopol, Ukraine in 2006. She immigrated to the US due to the political, economic, and social instability in Crimea. Simonova developed her interest in the nursing field and completed a Bachelor of Science and Master of Science in Nursing at MGH IHP in Boston, MA to advance her career as a Family Nurse Practitioner, focusing on optimizing the provision of high-quality compassionate healthcare to diverse and underserved patient populations. Simonova’s family and relatives who still reside in Kerch, Kyiv, and Lviv have been directly impacted by the war in Ukraine, which has torn the family apart. Ms. Simonova’s immediate goal is to actively support people within Ukraine, spread awareness, and assist in delivering urgent life-saving medical supplies, which led her to join the team of outstanding healthcare professionals of HUG and contribute towards making a meaningful difference.
