My name is Taylor Pope and I am the on-site owner of The (first and only) Goddard School in Washington DC! I am a third-generation franchisee, originally from the Hampton Roads area of Virginia where my family owns two other Goddard Schools (Virginia Beach “Lynnhaven” and Chesapeake). I attended Marymount University, where I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. After graduation, I moved back home to Virginia Beach to spend time with my family. I worked for a real estate group as a Property Manager, but a past relationship from Marymount redeveloped and brought me back to Northern Virginia. Soon after arriving, my family and I were presented with the opportunity to open The Goddard School at The Wharf! My girlfriend and I are now engaged with a wedding planned for the Fall of 2020. I am very excited to continue the family business by bringing Goddard into the DC market!
