Taylor grew up in Park City, Utah. She moved to Alaska in 2011 to compete for the UAA Alpine Ski Team, and quickly began to realize the full potential of the Chugach. Taking her first avalanche course with AAS in 2012 put the nail in the coffin, and on day two of the course she knew snow science and avalanche education was her future career path. Taylor previously coached ski racing at the U16-U21 level and has her level 100 coaching certification, PSIA level 1 instructor certification, and professional avalanche 1 certification. Taylor became a ski patroller in 2017, and began instructing with AAS in 2019. In the summers Taylor is the Program Director/sea kayaking guide based out of Aialik Bay, Whittier and Girdwood. When not on the snow or sea kayaking, she loves mountain biking and packrafting. To make up for her years in spandex, she will always be wearing more jackets than is necessary!
