Taylor Ricks is committed to make everyone—regardless of ability—feel welcomed, loved, and needed in their wards. Taylor has four amazing children, two of which have disabilities. She has spent time as a foster parent and now volunteers with the Utah Down Syndrome Foundation to help children and families touched by Down syndrome, in honor of her son, Zane. She attended Utah State University to earn a bachelor’s degree in family studies and earned a master's of education from Arizona State University in applied behavior analysis. When Taylor isn't caring for her family, she enjoys writing, dabbling in woodworking, and going on walks.
