Personal:
Began playing soccer at the age of four… played club for Shawn Kuroda with Surf Hawaii… came to Vanderbilt because, “Nashville is truly amazing… Coming from Hawaii it was perfect, because it wasn’t too small or too big of an area. Vanderbilt’s facilities are the best, and I knew I would get the best education/experience.”… loves to go to the beach and night swimming… full name is Taiana Ku’uipo Kamalalani Tolleson… chose Vanderbilt over Oral Roberts and Eastern Florida.

Coach Ambrose on Taiana: “Taiana is a natural athlete with a wonderful personality to match. As a multi sport athlete, as she refines some technical aspects of the position, she could grow into a formidable keeper in our program.”
