Taylor is from Rockford, Illinois. She heard about HCO when attending a job fair at Winona State University. Being a nursing student, she thought it would be a perfect opportunity for experience. She has been employed with HCO for almost two years. She was originally hired as a Direct Support Trainee. After three months of being hired, she was promoted to a part-time Program Assistant and on 8/3/19 was promoted to a full-time Program Assistant.
She feels that the individuals she supports all teach her many new things daily. She is grateful for the opportunity to serve the individuals and being able to grow professionally within the company. In her new role, she is looking forward to working alongside Kathy (Program Coordinator) to create a wonderful environment for the residents to thrive in. She is also looking forward to learning more about how HCO operates in serving their individuals.
Taylor has three older brothers, an older sister, a younger sister, a niece, and a nephew. She moved to Winona in 2017 to attend Winona State University studying nursing. She has also taken a semester of social work courses which will be helpful both in nursing and in her current role with HCO. She has a fluffy black and white cat named Boots and enjoys spending time with friends at the lake and watching movies. When she has time, Taylor likes to go back to Rockford to visit her family.
