PROFILE: Olivia Dumont, scholar and athlete

Dumont’s research to determine whether an extension of the uterine incision during a cesarean section is a risk for uterine rupture during the subsequent natural birth (or VBAC) was published in The American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Senior Superstar Olivia Dumont is one to be recognized. Field hockey captain, Co-President of National Honor Society, and a published researcher, are only a few of the many accomplishments of this young woman.

Over the Summer, Dumont participated in and internship with Mass General Hospital in Boston, MA as a requirement of her ASR (Authentic Science Research) class. Her research to determine whether an extension of the uterine incision during a cesarean section is a risk for uterine rupture during the subsequent natural birth (or VBAC) was published in The American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology. 

Dumont says she would like to be an obstetrician when she gets older and she stated that, “You get to be a part of the best day of someone’s life (when their child is born) every single day!” She saw cesarean sections being done and seeing it firsthand she said really helped with her research.

Along with her ASR accomplishments Dumont is a dedicated student and a part of many clubs, such as the green team, NHS, peer tutoring, Interact club, class office, debate, and band. She also plays field hockey and runs for the winter track team.

Her dedication to all of her activities shows and she tries to get to as many events as she can. Teachers and fellow students look to her as a role model and recognize her familiar face throughout the school and the community. Dumont will graduate this year and heading off to college in the fall and there is no doubt she will be missed by many of her friends and fellow classmates, along with the teacher and friends she leaves behind.
