Why We Love Taylor:

I watched Taylor coach recently and was once again inspired by her leadership, kindness, and poise. It’s clear her players and coaching staff adore her, respect her and put forward their best efforts for her. Since retiring from playing she has become one of the best referees in the state of Wisconsin, consistently handling middle and high school matches, college playoff games as well as senior side, and Select Side games.
