Taylor Riggs, MD
Taylor was born and raised in Houston, Texas, where she grew up doing competitive gymnastics and developed an interest in the field of medicine after one too many gymnastics injuries. She stayed in Houston to attend Rice University for her undergraduate training in biomedical engineering. Before starting medical school at the University of Texas at Houston, she took a year off to work for a medical device start-up company. She developed a passion for Internal Medicine, especially gastroenterology, during her third year of medical school. Although she will miss Texas (and Tex-Mex), she is excited to join the Vanderbilt family in Tennessee. Outside of the hospital she enjoys yoga (and teaching yoga), cooking, drinking coffee and/or wine, and spending time with her husband, who is also excited to explore Nashville! Member of AOA.
