Professional Development Committee Officers
Hello all! My name is Nicole Pang, and I am an undergraduate student majoring in biology with a pre-professional concentration. I enjoy staying involved in the community as I conduct clinical research in an emergency room and hold teaching roles on campus. I also continue to stay active by attending group fitness classes every day as a former hurdler and soccer player. During my free time, I enjoy cooking meals from scratch, going on long hikes, and spending valuable time with those around me. Please feel free to reach out if you need any assistance.
My name is Baylor Akhavan. I was born and raised in Las Vegas and one of my favorite hobbies is cooking, especially breakfast foods. During the weekends, you can often find me working with MedicWest as an EMT, where I run 911 calls, COVID testing, and vaccinations. Feel free to get in contact with me about any questions or concerns. Stay safe out there!
