Olivia Adams is a Massachusetts based full stack developer and engineering manager at electronic health record company Athenahealth. After seeing older family members struggle with complex and unreliable vaccine sites, she decided to build one herself. It has exploded in popularity and may serve as a model for other regions.

Episode Notes

It was a pandemic, Olivia was on maternity leave after giving birth, and she also had a toddler to take care of. Somehow she still managed to build a website, macovidvaccines.com, that provided far better service than what was available through government and private industry. Now she's trying to figure out how to hand it over to the community so anyone can build a site for their area.
