Dr. Taylor loves to travel around the world and experience new adventures. She has swam with sharks, chased tornadoes, and visited a whole list of countries and states. She enjoys hearing about others’ experiences and how those many differ from her own. She is a student of life.
Dr. Taylor has a heart for the underserved and is looking forward to developing a mobile clinic one day so that she can combine her love for travel with her compassionate heart.
Her road to becoming a medical doctor was one that took a few detours. Fresh out of high school, she attended Georgia Tech, where she earned her bachelors, masters, and doctorate in electrical engineering. She admits that she was not ready to be in a field where she would predominantly be caring for others as she needed to do some healing of her own.
She taught engineering courses for 8 years at Southern Polytech (now Kennesaw State’s Marietta Campus), and then taught a variety of science classes at Cherokee Christian School and Dominion Christian High School. It was during these experiences that she uncovered her love for human anatomy and how it functions. She attended Atlanta School of Massage and became a licensed massage therapist simply to be exposed to anatomy from a different and hands-on perspective.
She could not get enough, and so, with much prayer, she began to pursue the path to becoming a medical doctor once her youngest daughter graduated high school. She became a grandmother (see photo on the top right) while in medical school, and now has four grandchildren.
She believes that she needed to take the path that she did to heal and become a provider that can care wholly for the person in her exam room, and she is very excited about the opportunity to serve you and your family.
