Throughout the course of Taylor’s professional work and education, social justice, homelessness, and equality for the LGBTQ community has been their guiding motivation.
They have worked for King County’s Needle Exchange Program and the PITCH Study for HIV and HVC, both of which have helped to shape how issues of social justice, poverty, and health disparity are addressed. In the nonprofit arena, they have made a difference donating their time and energy to the Facing Homelessness/Homelessness in Seattle, Stone Soup Group, Pride Foundation and Washington SAFE Alliance.
After thirteen years as a successful small business owner in Seattle, they decided to deepen their commitment to advocacy work and continue their education. In 2012, they graduated from Seattle University with their Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and Cultural Anthropology with a minor in Criminal Justice.
Currently, they are enrolled in the Masters of Nonprofit Leadership program at Seattle University.
