Although Taylor's original career aspirations were in wildlife rehabilitation, her experiences with her sister, an adult on the autism spectrum, inspired her to change fields. Taylor's sister had fallen through the cracks of the educational and medical systems due to failings of the current diagnostic paradigm for autism spectrum disorders. Her current goal is to help better the lives of individuals with neurodevelopmental disorders through improvements in diagnostic approaches and interventions. To this end, she aims to pursue a doctoral program in behavioral neuroscience within the next five years. A few of Taylor's favorite non-academic things are based in her Wisconsin roots: she loves watching football (Go Pack Go!), fishing, and kayaking. She often hikes with her rescue mutt, a German Shorthaired Pointer mix named Milo. She and Milo are also excited to explore Canicross, a hybrid of cross country running and sledding.
