What Taylor Has to Say

What sparked your interest in physical therapy?

My interest in physical therapy started after high school. I went through rehab myself following shoulder surgery and it ignited a little spark. After meeting with a close family friend who was a pioneer in the therapy world, I learned what the profession had to offer and I was hooked.

Tell me about your PT school experience.

I earned my Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Rockhurst University in Kansas City. PT school was a great experience. I got to meet really interesting individuals with different backgrounds from all over the country but we shared a common goal of helping people. The curriculum was grueling but it was very rewarding knowing that you were going to put into practice what you were learning to help those around you.

Why do you work for Body Gears?

I chose to work for Body Gears because of the value they place on quality patient care, education and taking a whole-body approach to treating patients. I love getting to spend time one-on-one with patients to find out what their ultimate goals are for therapy and helping them succeed.

Describe your perfect Saturday.

My perfect Saturday would be anything that has to do with being outdoors. Either riding my horses and helping my parents on the farm back home or running along Lake Michigan. A Saturday isn’t complete without lots of really good food.

How do you stay active? 

I love to go out running and finding new places to explore. Occasionally you can find me biking, but my most favorite is when I get the chance to ride horses. I grew up rodeoing throughout the states and love anything to do with animals.
