Taylor Sprague | Learning and Development Manager
Office: St. Louis, Missouri
St. Louis, Missouri.
University of Missouri – Columbia.
Proudest moment in my career:
Getting hired on full-time at The Mission Continues after my year serving as an AmeriCorps VISTA.
Favorite fall activity:
Stuffing my face with chili on Football Sundays and heading back to Mizzou to tailgate with the Tigers…and cheering on the Cardinals during the playoffs every year.
Favorite movie/favorite current movie:
“Remember the Titans”
Favorite memory at The Mission Continues:
Watching the Bravo Class 2013 take their oath of continued service at the 9/11 Memorial. And meeting Jon Stewart was pretty cool too.
Hidden gem in St. Louis:
Mom’s Deli for lunch or Russell’s on Macklind for breakfast.
Most rewarding thing about working at The Mission Continues:
Service has always been important to me, so working at an organization where service is at the core of what I do every day is extremely rewarding. There’s nothing better than hearing about the success stories and the impact veterans from The Mission Continues are having on communities here at home.
I like to look at houses I’ll never be able to afford. I also recently discovered I’m excellent at hula hooping.
Item on my bucket list:
Spend lots of time at pubs in Ireland.
