The love of physical activity and competition came from watching her older brother play hockey and lacrosse. From an early age, she thrived on both and being the best at what she did.

Taylor’s passion for physical activity grew during her school years participating in such sports as soccer, basketball, volleyball, baseball, track and field and flag football to secondary school where she played on the varsity flag football team for three years and an all girls rep volleyball team for two years. Entering her final year of high school, her passion for physical fitness became an obsession.
