Taylor is originally from Woodstock, Georgia, a northern suburb of Atlanta, but spent time in Montana working for the ABC FOX affiliate before joining the MyArkLaMiss team.

She has her bachelor's degree in Public Affairs Journalism from the University of Georgia's Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communications.

When she wasn't studying or cheering on the Dawgs, she spent her time working with many organizations on campus. Taylor is a proud member of Delta Gamma Fraternity and DiGamma Kappa, the broadcast society at UGA. She also volunteered with Grady Newsource, the campus news station, and the Office of International Affairs.

Taylor was able to complete two study abroad programs while at Georgia studying in Australia, Fiji and Italy. She is a member of the Georgia Writer's Association, Education Writer's Association and the Investigative Reporters & Editors organization. It was through her jobs and internships in multiple media platforms that she discovered her passion for journalism.

Taylor worked as a freelance writer for Athens Magazine and Thrive and also interned with an online fashion magazine, BLVD. She found her passion for broadcast journalism as a newsroom intern at WWAY News Channel 3 out of Wilmington, NC. She got even more newsroom experience when she completed the Intern For A Day Program with CBS Atlanta.

Since graduating from UGA in May 2013, She has improved her reporting and video journalism skills by working freelance for the USA Today sports web site during SEC Media Days and covering the USA Olympic bobsled team.
