Dr. Taylor is a board-certified pediatrician and adolescent medicine specialist. She was born in North Carolina and grew up in Jacksonville, Florida. A lover of sun and sea, she stayed in Florida to attend Florida State University (Go Noles!) for undergrad and the University of South Florida for medical school. After that, she moved to Charlottesville for her residency training. She fell in love with the mountains and the idea of seasons.
After residency, she completed a three-year fellowship in adolescent medicine at Indiana University, where she also received her master’s in bioethics and completed a clinical ethics fellowship. She returned to Charlottesville in 2015 to become part of the extraordinary team at the UVA Teen and Young Adult Health Center. Her passion is helping adolescents and young adults navigate complicated medical challenges and decisions.
Dr. Taylor spends her free time enjoying life with her husband, two children and dog, exploring the amazing things that the Charlottesville community and surrounding areas have to offer.
