Board of Directors


Taylor Darling

I have worked for Toyota in Saline, MI for 12+ years and am currently focused on planning future vehicle platforms. My responsibilities include planning and budget management for projects spanning 3-5 years in duration as well as forecasting for the end of the decade. The skills required will support the other BOD Officers in managing the HOA.
I have been a resident of Whittaker Village for six years. While this is my first opportunity to serve on the Board of an organization, I am passionate about volunteering and serving others.
I am driven to serve on the HOA Board with the overall goal of improving transparency of operations and increasing community pride.
My interests include following MSU & the St. Louis Cardinals, travel, woodworking and running/hiking for exercise.
I hope to eventually see a baseball game at every MLB stadium and am nearly halfway there.

Vice President

Laura Davia

I am a stay at home mom of two for the past 9 years, previously working in the medical field for over a decade. I have served on two boards since moving to Michigan in 2015.

My family and I have been residents of Whittaker Village since December 2017. I have been a member of the board since 2022, previously serving as Treasurer.

I was inspired by fellow residents to join the board and devoting time to support our community. My goal as board member is to help make the community a welcoming, beautiful, and safe space for our families to enjoy and call home.

I love to travel.  One of my favorite trips was to Australia to visit the wine country, beaches and a few cities. 
I'm a gold star campfire chef.  I enjoy camping with my family and I have mastered the art of camp fire pie iron for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.
I've also been deemed a world class "wind sock" dancer.  I won't pass up on a concert and really enjoy letting go to dance and sing.
