My name is Jeriah Taylor and I’m a Junior at The University of Texas at Austin. I am currently majoring in Applied Movement Science with a specialization in Coaching and Physical Education. I am also acquiring a Personal Training Certification. Sports and I have been best friends for almost a decade! I have experience in Basketball, Volleyball, Soccer, Softball, and Track.
I’ve had the pleasure of working as a Unified Partner and Coach with Special Olympics Texas which is one of the largest sport organizations for individuals with intellectual and physical disabilities. In addition to sports and fitness, I have an unwavering love for mentorship. I am currently mentoring 25+ incoming UT freshman and individuals from my high school where I occasionally go back to speak to several classes filled with young minds. With my degree and certifications, I plan to open a Sport Performance Complex for athletes of all ages.
