Taylor's rare disease advocacy journey began in elementary school after losing her father to a rare genetic disease of which she is also a carrier. Over the years, she has been involved in various advocacy initiatives, most notably founding her own nonprofit, Remember The Girls, in 2017. At 22 years old, she is an established speaker and leader in the rare disease community.

Years of advocacy work has taught Taylor a lot about controlling her narrative and building a brand, both on and offline. She believes in harnessing the power of social media to showcase her personality, skills, and accomplishments, and inspire people to action. She trusts that staying true to herself has helped her achieve her goals.

When Taylor was 3 years old, her dad was diagnosed with a rare, terminal illness. He passed away when she was in kindergarten, leaving her to navigate life without a father. To cope with his loss and honor his memory, Taylor turned to volunteerism and advocacy. Taylor feels helping others is the best way to overcome grief and deal with adversity.

Taylor has been building communities since high school, and in 2017 founded her nonprofit, Remember The Girls, to empower carriers of X-linked genetic disorders. In just three years, she has connected over 600 carriers through social media advocacy and outreach campaigns. On top of that, Taylor has a vast network of rare disease advocates and influencers.

Taylor is a strong believer that no one is too young to get involved in community service and advocacy. Having been a volunteer and advocate since elementary school, she has seen first-hand the power of young people's involvement in changing the world for the better. Today, she encourages other teens and young adults to get involved, and is of the opinion that their perspectives are vital.

Surviving & Thriving as a carrier of a genetic disease

When her father was diagnosed with ALD, Taylor's family found out that she was also a genetic carrier of the disease. Taylor grew up with the understanding that there is a 50% chance she will pass the disease to her future children, and in the last few years has come to terms with the high possibility of future symptoms. Still, she remains positive and hopeful.
