Meet Taylor Dace
Taylor Dace, a graduate from Olivet Nazarene University has joined our staff to expand our business into providing further health care to this clinic. As an undergraduate Taylor emphasized in the Athletic training program at Olivet working closely with all of the collegiate sports that the University has to offer, there he conducted rehabilitation, assessments, as well as treatment plans to each individual athlete at Olivet. On the side of Athletic training, Taylor also worked as a Personal trainer conducting exercises and nutritional guidelines to help his clients lose weight and to also control each individual’s health issues, such as hypertension and Diabetes. If Taylor was not performing in the personal training or athletic training field then you would find him spending more time with sports teams by being strength and conditioning coach to improve the performance level of each athlete. Ultimately Taylor was wired to be in the health care system to care for each individual by helping each patient find what they are looking for physically and emotionally. Taylor has the drive and motivation to help somebody reach the ultimate goal… A lifestyle that involves being healthy.
