Advice to Incoming Students

Everything happens for a reason, even if you don’t understand why. Just be still, let go, and trust in the Lord.

Why I Came to Taylor

I love the warm, friendly atmosphere here. When I first started here everyone was so nice, I thought it was just because I was new. But then I came to realize that’s just how people are here; very friendly, warm, welcoming, and caring.


My husband Chris and I have been friends since the seventh grade and we have four children. Since they are all involved in activities like football, basketball, softball, t-ball, dance, show choir, and piano, we spend a lot of our time going from here to there. Although we are busy, we still make sure to have dinner at the table with each other—even if it means eating at 5:30 p.m. or 7:30 p.m. That’s where we connect as a family and that’s very important to us.

Hanging out with my family, cheering on the Indianapolis Colts and the Cincinnati Reds, traveling, and cooking. I have been a blue belt in karate since 2002.
