Meet Mrs. Pennsylvania America 2018-Sandahl Taylor

Sandahl Taylor is Mrs. Pennsylvania America 2018.   She was crowned May 5, 2018 touting her platform of Heart Health Awareness with an emphasis of “Heart Health at Any Age”.  She chose this platform for several passionate reasons. Not only did her father, a US Navy veteran suffer from a heart attack and stroke, she learned she too had a heart condition herself at the age of 28.  In addition to many of her friends that have family members who are affected as well, it is the number one cause of death in America. Sandahl has already made huge strides in her platform, and is planning on continuing her efforts with The American Heart Association near her hometown of Pittsburgh, PA and throughout the State.

Sandahl graduated from the South Hills Beauty Academy, in Dormont, PA with a license as a Cosmetology Instructor/Teacher. She is also a licensed cosmetologist and is currently attending classes in the Cosmetology Master Educator Program.

In 2015, Sandahl married SSG Kenneth Taylor, veteran of the US Army, who currently works as an IT support specialist near Pittsburgh, PA. In addition to proudly being a military spouse, Sandahl is a mother, daughter, sister-in-law, aunt, and friend to many retired and current members of the United States Armed Forces. As a way to give back, she has spent the last few years providing complimentary haircuts through The Veterans Leadership Programs, annual events as well as through several events at her place of employment.  She also has volunteered for a few years at several events for The American Heart Association, raising awareness, and funds to help support her platform and become an advocate for heart health. Some of the events she had the honor of volunteering for are the Annual Heart Ball, Annual Heart Walks, and she even founded her own event called “Style for the Heart.” 

Mrs. Taylor is currently an educator at a Beauty Academy and teaches Cosmetology, Esthetics, and Nail Technology. Sandahl and Kenneth are the proud parents of two wonderful children, and also have nieces and nephews. Sandahl’s hobbies include: singing, dancing, modeling, writing, and spending time with her family, as well as reading with her children.
