Meet the Owner

Taylor Dee Spencer is the owner of TUMBLEBUS South Charlotte, LLC. Taylor LOVES children, fitness, literacy, music, and movement and her passions were discovered at the young age of 5. She always knew she wanted to work with children.

Taylor obtained a Masters of Science in Youth Development Leadership from Clemson University. She is currently obtaining a Doctorate from Liberty University where her research and studies are focused around curriculum and instruction that increases engagement for young learners, teachers, and parents.

Taylor prayed for God to send her an idea to integrate all of her passions and talents into one. God led her to discover the national TUMBLEBUS program that provides extracurricular classes to children all across the nation!
