Meet Our Coaches!

Aya Abdel-Kader

Hi there, Aya here. I’m an undergraduate student majoring in Community Health and minoring in Health Communication. I love doing these creatively, so no matter your concern, we’ll find a way that works best for you while also making it fun and engaging. I love working with people on a personal level; just talking with people fuels my ideas and ignites my sense of creativity. I want to be a writer, a teacher of unique subjects (those that touch a wide range of topics), and do something to the health of those who cannot afford adequate health care.

Taylor Wynne

Hi, I am a neuroscience/premed major looking to become a physician-scientist doing clinical research. I love to travel and participate in outdoor activities. I also enjoy mentoring and helping other students achieve their goals.
