COLLEGE

I attended Northwest Missouri State my first semester as a Freshman. Unfortunately, it was not the right fit. I attended Nebraska Wesleyan second semester and realized I wanted to become an Occupational Therapist. I absolutely loved Wesleyan. I considered playing volleyball, but they they are in a conference that requires a lot of travel. I became aware of the fast track OT program at College of Saint Mary and have always had the goal of playing volleyball in college. I am confident College of Saint Mary will finally be the perfect fit for me.

This is her third year with our club and has been a great addition to our team. She is a great TEAM player and works very hard to be the very best in whatever she does. Her integrity on and off the court is commendable. She is a straight A student and works very hard to maintain those grades in school. Taylor has been a wonderful addition to our team and was an integral part as to why our team was able to qualify for the Girls JNC tournament for the first time ever, which was held in Minneapolis, MN last.
