Although Taylor Ng took the traditional corporate route after graduation, she recently decided to take a risk and pursue another passion of hers. For the past two years Taylor had worked in as an investment banking analyst at Evercore. She found the job challenging and interesting, and she enjoyed working with her coworkers; however, she decided to hang up the power suit for the time being and pick up her tennis racket.
Taylor had played tennis nearly her whole life, was Dartmouth’s first NCAA singles qualifier, and racked up numerous accolades, including All-Ivy First Team in singles and doubles three years in a row. While working in corporate America, Taylor barely picked up her racket, but when she went to watch the Dartmouth women’s tennis team play in Boston in February, she realized she had unfinished business on the court. Taylor spent this past spring continuing her work at Evercore while training again with her personal coach. In June Taylor officially left investment banking to pursue a career on the professional women’s tennis circuit. She’s been at the gym and on the court every day, and says she has “never felt more passion and conviction in anything my entire life.” She began competing in some regional professional tournaments this summer. Taylor is aware that she has arduous mental and physical work ahead of her, but she looks forward to taking on the challenges and following her heart. Best of luck, Taylor!
