Taylor was brought up in Auckland and attended the Auckland University of Technology and achieved a Bachelor of Sport and Recreation. Whilst studying, Taylor undertook an eighteen-month co-operative education placement with Sport Auckland. This placement involved carrying out a research project where Taylor looked at understanding the motivation and participation barriers in physical activity for 5-10 year olds in a school setting. From this placement, Taylor gained a full-time role with Sport Auckland in a graduate profile position.
Taylor has always been involved in all aspects of sport and enjoys playing in a team environment. Her favourite sports include Netball, Waka Ama and Paddle Boarding.
Her eighteen-month placement emphasises and highly contributes towards her passion to work on a community level. Taylor is looking forward to continuing on with her work in the Inner City and sharing her passion surrounding active and healthy lifestyles with others.
