LET'S GET PERSONAL

Taylor enjoys spending time outside with her sheepadoodle Wilbur, going on walks, and exploring new parks. Being active is a significant aspect of her life and self-care routine, including weight-lifting, yoga, cycle classes, and dancing. She cherishes moments spent with family and friends, relishing good food and each other’s company. Taylor finds joy in traveling and discovering new destinations, but she also appreciates quiet moments curled up with a good book.
