A Girl with a Dream

Passion: An intense emotion, a competing enthusiasm or desire for something.


Perseverance: Steadfastness in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success.


Purpose: The reason for which something exists.


My name is Taylor Drescher. I am a believer in God, a third generation  Marine, a hopeless romantic and dating the love of my life. I am a daughter, a sister, a friend, a prior competitive cheerleader and 3X National Champion with the University of Louisville. I am a former National Professional Grid League athlete for the Los Angeles Reign. I am a 2x Regional level CrossFit Games Individual athlete, and a 1x Regional level CrossFit Games Team athlete. I am currently on Team CrossFit CDR and we are currently in the Open season in attempt to qualify, for what will be my first time, in the 2016 CrossFit Games in Carson California.

I am a dreamer, a fighter, an individual with a burning PASSION for excelling in physical and mental feats. Since the age of 19 I have longed to qualify for the CrossFit Games as an individual athlete…. and I won’t stop until I do. I believe that my character is developing daily as I am faced with adversity and I continue to choose PERSEVERANCE over backing down. I have met countless individuals along the way who have helped write my story and given me the tools to create the life I desire.

I believe that the mentors in my life and my faith in God has put me into a position where I am now comfortable making myself vulnerable to the community that may choose to follow me. I believe in critical thinking and mental toughness. I believe in breaking down walls and stereotypes.I believe in being a role model for the future generation. I believe in positive attitudes and always finding a way to win. I believe in being a relentless student of leadership and that love makes the world go round. I believe that respect is earned, never given and Marines are some of the fiercest individuals on the planet, not because they are born that way, but because they are made that way. I believe that America is the greatest country because of the men and women who sacrifice to keep it that way. I believe becoming a master of your trade and devoting countless hours to do what others won’t is one of the most challenging but rewarding accomplishments one can achieve. I believe that if you can’t go a day without thinking about something, then you should never stop working for it.I believe that team work truly does make the dream work. I believe in accountability, integrity, trust, honor, courage and commitment.  I believe that experience is irreplaceable and that taking risks are often necessary. I believe that my PURPOSE is to lead others through unwavering fortitude and to live out the life God has in store for me.

I believe that your passion leads you to your purpose, but only those who chose to persevere will be the change they wish to see in the world.

      Thank you so much Brian! Love having someone like you as a role model in my life as well. It’s great knowing that I can give you a call and count on your advice anytime. Phone works both ways and I hope you can make it out to Regionals in Del Mar the weekend of 13-15 May!
