Bachelor of Science in Public Health, University of Georgia
Doctor of Occupational Therapy, Medical University of South Carolina
Taylor was first introduced to occupational therapy while coaching a special needs cheerleading team; many of the parents of the cheerleaders spoke highly of the field of occupational therapy. She appreciates the holistic approach that OT incorporates in helping children further their independence in a fun and fulfilling way.
During her doctoral program, Taylor worked in a variety of community settings and with a number of different populations. She completed her doctoral capstone on the implementation of life skill programming for youth within the foster care system, where she worked to increase access to services and provide a safe environment for skill development crucial for independent living for youth 14-21 years of age in the Charleston, South Carolina community. Within the clinic setting, she has worked with children with autism, ADHD, Down syndrome, sensory processing disorder, cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injuries, and visual impairments, as well as those with developmental trauma and neglect.
Taylor grew up in Cumming and now lives in Atlanta. When she’s not working you can find her spending time with friends and family, exploring new coffee shops and restaurants, and finding as many opportunities for travel as possible.
