Veterinary Technician

Taylor was born in the countryside of Mount Pleasant, Iowa. Growing up, she frequently visited her grandparent’s farm. Her favorite part on the farm was chore time and loved to take care of all the farm animals. She was excited to wake at 3:00 am to bottle feed baby goats or watch chicks hatch from their shells. As a member of 4-H, she showed chickens, rabbits and sheep at the Henry County fair. Taylor’s grandmother provided her inspiration to pursue her career in veterinary medicine. After high school, Taylor attended Kirkwood Community College graduating from the veterinary technician program while studying animal medicine. At home, she cares for her golden retriever, “Teddi” and two chinchillas named “Jefferi” and “Stanli”. She hopes to work with various animals besides dogs and cats and is excited for what comes next.
