Student Entrepreneur Spotlight: Taylor Pierce
WRITTEN BY Judy Berthiaume
When Taylor Pierce arrived on UW-Eau Claire’s campus she never imagined that her passion for baking would help her find a major — and hopefully a career — that she loves.The Ashwaubenon native will graduate in December with a degree in management with an entrepreneur emphasis, as well as with a plan to open her own Cupcakery, a cupcake bakery. “I’ve always had the passion and love for baking,” says Taylor. When Taylor earns her degree, she will be among the first Blugolds to have completed all the classes that are part of UW-Eau Claire’s recently revamped and growing entrepreneurial program. Now considered one of the most comprehensive programs in Wisconsin, nearly 75 Blugolds currently are entrepreneur majors or minors.
