Taylor is a senior majoring in Environmental Science and Health and minoring in Health Care studies. She likes health! and the environment! Don’t pollute.
Taylor is from Carmel via San Jose via Texas. None of these burbs offered her much of an opportunity to explore the outdoors. Then Taylor, at the wee age of 14, went backpacking with her boarding school
Taylor soon realized that she greatly preferred being outdoors and away from those who frown upon putting cheese on peanutbutter-jelly-trailmix burritos. She then spent a semester backpacking, sea kayaking and canoeing through New Zealand’s backcountry before settling down in South Central Los Angeles. She also became a Wilderness Emergency Medical Technician in Wyoming once. That was tight. She now works at the Hyperbaric Chamber on Catalina Island, where a normal day consists of getting Nitrogen Narcosis while trapped in a chamber with 7 sheriffs.
If you mention anything relating to icebergs, dive medicine or sharks within a three mile radius of Taylor, she will find you and be very stoked.
