But we already knew all of this. What don’t we know about Taylor? We were dying to find out, so we asked her to share five little-known facts about herself.

Read on to learn about Taylor’s musical talents, and how she could probably out-run and out-swim most of us.

  1. I’m a certified personal trainer. I coach a few workouts a week for Crosswim, a workout program in Tempe that blends running, swimming and bodyweight exercises for a high-intensity, full body workout. I have been coaching for about four years, and it’s a blast!
  2. I was obsessed with The Sound of Music when I was little. My Granny made me dresses that matched the girls in the movie (including one that looked like it was made from the drapes!), and I could recite the entire scene where the kids march in and introduce themselves.
  3. As a child, I wanted to be an author when I grew up. I was constantly writing short stories and was a voracious reader. That’s not my dream anymore, but I still spend most of my days writing!
  4. I played the viola for nine years in school – from fourth grade through my senior year of high school. Although I hated practicing at home, I am so glad I was involved in music growing up. Plus, my fellow orchestra nerds are some of the coolest people I’ve ever known. I still own my viola, and plan to pick it up again someday to see if I can still read music!
  5. I love cartoons and animated movies. Favorites include Tim Burton movies, Aladdin, Hercules, Up and, of course, SpongeBob.
