Meet our 2022-2023 Executive Board
Hello! My name is Abby Pierce, and I am a senior from Huntsville, Alabama and have been an Alabama fan since before I can remember! I am majoring in Biology with a minor in mathematics with intentions of attending medical school. Outside of class, I work as a medical scribe at Middle Creek Medical Center in Bessemer, Alabama, volunteer at Druid City Regional Medical Center, and serve as an Honors College Ambassador, where I get to showcase UA’s Honors College to prospective students and their families! In my free time, I enjoy running, hiking, and hanging out with friends and family.
As President for the 2022-2023 school year, I will be overseeing AED’s Executive Board and all the activities we have planned for this year. I want to work towards fostering an environment that will allow for the continual academic growth and development of all members, regardless of age, class, or induction status. I want to find a balance between new and returning speakers, and ensure that weekly meetings and presentations are beneficial and informative for all members. I also plan on incorporating more social and community events within AED so members can form friendships with one another, allowing for a tight-knit group of pre-health students with a strong support system! I would love to answer any questions you might have, so feel free to email me at any time. I am honored to serve you all alongside the other members of the executive board, and I am looking forward to another great year! Roll Tide!!!
Hey y’all! My name is Madi Boudreaux and I’m a senior at The University of Alabama. I’m majoring in Psychology on the Pre-Medical Track and minoring in Biology and the Randall Research Scholars Program. I’m thrilled to be serving as the Vice President of AED for the 2022-2023 school year!
Outside of AED, I’m involved in different organizations on and off campus. I currently serve as the Co-Director of the UA Dance Marathon Morale Committee, going on my 4th year of involvement in UADM! In addition, I give tours of my sorority (Chi Omega) as a Greek Ambassador, volunteer at Druid City Hospital, and work as a Kaplan Student Brand Ambassador. In the past, I also went on a medical outreach trip to Panama with UA Volunteers Around the World and co-led AED’s Pre-Health Mentoring Initiative.
As AED’s VP, I look forward to overseeing our 6 Initiatives and collaborating with the Executive Board and Initiative Leaders. I’m honored to be in a position of leadership that allows me to give back to the younger members of an organization that has positively shaped my pre-medical experience! Please reach out to me to learn more about how you can get involved in AED’s 6 Initiatives and our organization as a whole. Thank y’all and Roll Tide!

Hi everyone! My name is Malena Long and I am so excited to be your AED Historian for the 2022-2023 school year! I am a sophomore from Memphis, Tennessee majoring in Biology with a minor in the Randall Research Scholars Program. I am in the pursuit of medical school following my graduation in 2024 and have aspirations to become an oncologist-hematologist.
Here at the University of Alabama, I am passionate about all that I am involved in. I am able to be a word of advice and encouragement through the Honors College Ambassadors to prospective students, an advocate for the community as I serve and tutor alongside the Brown House Nonprofit Organization, and a researcher through the department of biological sciences with Dr. Melanie Higgins. I trained and ran a marathon last semester and hope to qualify for Boston in December.
As the Historian for this school year, I will be accountable for keeping all of the members informed with our events, meetings and volunteer activities throughout the year. All of this information will be available throughout the platforms I am in charge of which would be our website and our instagram page! I am so excited to work alongside our Executive Board this year and if you have any suggestions for either platform please don’t hesitate to reach out! RTR!
