Shannon Taylor joined the Board in 2015 as an Athlete Representative after being a part of the U.S. Women’s National Team for six years. She competed at the 2012 London Olympic Games and helped the United States to a gold medal at the 2011 Pan American Games. She retired in June of 2014, making 111 appearances for the team.

Taylor started her collegiate field hockey career at Richmond University but later transferred to Syracuse University. At Syracuse, she graduated with a Bachelor's in Rhetoric and Communications. With the Orange, she earned National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) Division I All-America First Team and All-BIG EAST First team honors. She led the national in goals (31) and points (79) in her final year of collegiate athletics and was a finalist for the Honda Award. She was recently inducted into the University of Richmond Hall of Fame with her 2004 Field Hockey Team of Distinction.

Taylor currently is the assistant coach at the University of Massachusetts. She remains active in the sport, through coaching, clinics and assisting with the Junior National Teams.
