Taylor’s other research interests include: stigma, public health, violent acts, youth and child development, children and families, education, urban sociology, and languages and cultures.

An Elon University grad living in Memphis, TN post-college, Taylor relocated to her home in the Old Line State in 2017. In 2018, she launched Charm City Spotlight to showcase the fascinating people that make up the heartbeat of Baltimore (Image: 2).

In her free time, you could find Taylor spending time with her family, running or playing outdoors, or traveling for a conference or vacation. If you spot her in an airport, she is likely the person wearing mix-matched socks at the security check-point, chatting with a stranger who may still be wearing headphones, or laughing loudly at an unfunny and juvenile pun.
