A high school athlete who suffered an ALC injury, not once, but twice (!) Taylor spent a lot of time with the trainer and orthopedist. When she started her undergrad studies at the University of Texas at Austin, athletic training seemed like a natural fit. Working with collegiate athletes from the sidelines gave Taylor a unique perspective on the human body and the most common of orthopedic injuries – those caused by overuse. Deciding to pursue her studies further, Taylor went on to complete her PA studies at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley before returning to the Austin area. Taylor joined CTPO in 2016. As both an Athletic Trainer and a PA specializing in orthopedics, Taylor knows a lot about the experience of student athletes. From helping parents and kids prevent overuse injuries to working to get patients back on the field or track after an injury, Taylor is with our patients every step of the way. While she sympathizes with patients who want to get back to activity ASAP, she is a huge supporter of rest and rehab, especially when it comes to overcoming overuse injuries. She recommends parents and student athletes follow CTPO’s return to activity protocols to help get back to activity in a healthy, long-term way. When she’s not working with our patients, Taylor is a travel buff! She’s covered Toronto, Seattle, Hawaii and is soon off to Europe! A sports and music fan, Taylor can be found locally at a UT football game, a Spurs game or a local music festival.
