My Top Skills

Interviewing

My experience in journalism provides me expertise in connecting with people and pulling out their stories.

I use survey tools like SPSS, Qualtrics and Google Forms to analyze data quickly.

Storytelling

As a poet, I use my storytelling skills in my research to communicate effectively with impact.

Usability Testing

I create scenarios for testing usability that provide real-time insights on user interactions.

Content Testing

I create content based tests for user comprehension and review analytics for engagement.

Diversity & Inclusion

I think critically about how research and design affects diverse users in unique ways to combat bias.

Working With Me Feels Like...

Taylor was such a great team player when it came to school projects. We worked together in multiple courses on research ranging from racial bias in facial recognition to user experience research techniques. I always valued her opinion on anything both inside academia, as well as outside, due to her genuine, insightful nature. She knows how to think about topics from perspectives not often thought of. She is a deep thinker, a compassionate classmate, and someone who I would recommend for any position.

In life you meet people who you know possess a special gift and Taylor is one such person. I had the pleasure of working with Taylor as her direct supervisor for a short time. But within that time, I observed a young enthusiastic woman who gives her 110 percent. Taylor is a woman of integrity who is willing to personally share her story with others so that they may not feel alone in their life’s journey and so that they may grow. She is an inspiration to me and to others and I am thankful just to know her. She is truly a shining star.
