Professional Development Coordinators

Hello everyone! My name is Yajaira (ya-hi-ra), and I want to start off by saying that you can ask how to say my name as many times need be (: I’m currently pursuing a degree in Pre-Professional Biology with minors in Marriage and Family Therapy and Chemistry! I’m set to graduate spring 2019, and I couldn’t be happier to spend my last year at UNLV as an APHP officer! I hope to pursue a career in medicine sometime in the near future, and be able to provide back to the community who has given so much to me. I currently work as an ER Scribe for one of the busiest hospitals in the Valley, Sunrise! When I’m not in class, or in the library, or at work, I enjoy trying out new places to eat. It’s one of my most enjoyable hobbies along with watching Netflix and being a huge movie go-er!  Another thing that I’m extremely passionate about is traveling. I studied abroad in Costa Rica during SP 2016, and ever since I’ve had the travel bug! Last summer, I took a trip to Europe where I traveled to Italy, Spain, and Ireland. I’m pumped about all the new plans and goals we have in store for APHP, and I’m excited to meet and interact with all the members (new and returning!). APHP has given so much to me over the years that I’ve been a member, and I’m thrilled to be able to do the same for all our members this year! If you ever have any questions about anything, need some advice, or just want to talk, feel free to reach out or stop me whenever you see.

Hello, my name is Angela! I am your basic pre-med student with a Biology major and Psychology minor. I have always wanted to work in the healthcare field and I hope I can accomplish that goal one day. I like volunteering because it’s fun and I like getting involved in the community. I currently volunteer at UMC hospital in the ER and I also do community service with Big Brothers and Big Sisters. In my free time I like to watch Netflix, hang out with family and friends, and try new food! Some of my favorite things to watch on Netflix are New Girl, Grey’s Anatomy, and crime shows! I also love animals, especially dogs and penguins. I love meeting new people and making new friends so I am looking forward to getting to know you all this school year. I am excited to be one of your officers this year and I hope to help everyone here! ​
