Taylor is graduating from Preble High School. She is already a CNA – Certified Nursing Assistant and works at Odd Fellow Rebekah Home Association. Per Taylor, “I'm going to Carroll University for nursing, I chose nursing because when I was younger I always knew I wanted to do something that deals with science when I was older but I also wanted to be able to help people and hopefully makes their lives a bit better. I was part of a nursing camp the summer after sophomore year and it just clicked then that what I wanted to be was a nurse.”
