Tai’s Disney career is rooted in childhood memories of visiting the parks with her family. From two Disney Internships and a career spanning 15 at Walt Disney World® Resort, there was never a specific role in mind for Tai. Instead, her focus was on being the best version of herself in each role she held, and her desire to create the same happiness and memories for others that sparked her career.
