Taylor comes to South Florida from Asheville, North Carolina where she worked as a morning reporter and fill-in anchor at WLOS. She began her on-air career in Chattanooga, Tennessee at WTVC. There, she worked as a one-woman band, shooting and editing her own stories before presenting them on air.
She earned two Associated Press awards for her reporting on police-use-of force policies, particularly the use of chokeholds.
Before reporting in front of the camera, Taylor found a love for journalism behind the scenes as as a production assistant for NBC at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. She’s also interned with Dateline NBC, WSB-TV in Atlanta, and CNN.

She is excited to build community here in South Florida. When she’s not reporting she’s likely somewhere singing loudly and off-key, lounging on the beach, or doing yoga.
