Robyn Olson

Managing Consultant
RDH, MPA, PhD

 

Robyn joined Boston Benefit Partners in 2009 and became a Partner in April of 2018. She is a lifelong learner with a passion for health policy and politics. She has a PhD in Public Affairs and a Master of Public Administration from Northeastern University. She uses this education and training to the benefit of all BBP clients and her students at the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (MCPHS), where she teaches Health Policy and Finance.  

Prior to joining BBP in 2009, she worked at Delta Dental of Massachusetts, where she was highlighted in their 2007 annual report as both an “innovator and an implementer who has championed the delivery of breakthrough oral health services to plan members and the community at large.”  From 1999-2002, Robyn served as the Assistant Director of Budget for the Group Insurance Commission (GIC), the organization responsible for the procurement and management of the benefit programs for the state’s 140,000 employees and retirees.  At the GIC, she became skilled at policy analysis, budgeting, and the procurement and management of benefit plans and programs.

Robyn is a Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH) and served as the Assistant Dean of the Forsyth School for Dental Hygienist early in her career. She brings her vast knowledge in the oral health arena and her consensus building skills to her clients at BBP and to the coalitions in which she participates. She currently serves as the Chair of the Oral Health Advocacy Task Force (OHAT) and as a board member on the Better Oral Health for Massachusetts Coalition (BOHMAC) and the Massachusetts Coalition for Oral Health (MCOH).

Her humble personality, sense of humor and cheerful demeanor are valued by all who work with her. While she is not teaching, working or training, Robyn escapes to Cape Cod to refuel and enjoy her wonderful extended family.
