Taylor is a Research Study Assistant in the READi Lab, working on the Sprout and Pathways studies. A proud Wisconsinite, she graduated from Carroll University with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and Psychology in May 2018. Before joining the lab, she coordinated the Iowan site for SPARK, a nation-wide study of autism genetics. Her experiences with SPARK, and with the greater autism community, strongly reinforced her desire to ensure that evidence-based resources are accessible for all autistic people and their families. In her free time, Taylor loves watching football (Go Pack Go!), fishing, and kayaking. She often hikes with her rescue mutt, Milo. She aspires to earn a PhD in Clinical Psychology in the future.
