“This past year was one which was very difficult, both personally and professionally, for me  and my family. My grandparents’ home was destroyed by a tornado in April, my mother’s sickness and then ultimate death, the challenges we faced as a team, and of course Hurricane Florence all took their own individual tolls in my life. I feel this decision provides me with the best opportunity to reassess my goals and find out what comes next,”said Taylor.
