Taylor Sprague | Learning and Development Manager

Office: St. Louis, Missouri

Hometown:

St. Louis, Missouri.

School:

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.

Guilty pleasure:

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.
