Senior Research Assistant
Taylor is a final-year student at UNC Chapel Hill’s School of Social Work. She graduated from The College of William & Mary in 2020 and worked on research projects in both the Psychology department along with the Kinesiology & Health Sciences department. Because of her Kinesiology background, Taylor finds the connection between the mind and body to be one of huge significance. She also feels that it is her duty as a future social worker to participate in research and determine which interventions and treatment plans are the best possible ones for clients. Taylor plans on obtaining her PhD in social work a few years after getting her LCSW and supervision hours.
