Meet Taylor


Taylor is a friendly face who always greets you with a smile! She is a team player and has a passion for helping/taking care of others. Taylor loves to think outside the box and brings a new creative perspective to the table.

Taylor graduated from Lafayette High School in St. Joseph, then attended Northwest Missouri State University where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing. Prior to joining the Gertsema Weath team, Taylor spent 3 ½ years working for the St. Joseph School District in Special Education.

Taylor loves spending time with her family, especially when they can get outdoors! She particularly enjoys camping, fishing, boating, swimming, racing, mushroom hunting, and live music. Taylor also enjoys woodworking and crafting. Any opportunity she gets to make or design something herself, she takes it! She is also an avid animal lover, especially her black Lab, Izzy, who is spoiled rotten!
