Taylor joined the Delaware Center for the Inland Bays as the Science Coordinator in October of 2023. Her current work focuses on a variety of restoration and monitoring projects, including but not limited to submerged aquatic vegetation, reforestation, living shorelines, and ambient water quality monitoring.

She grew up in Allentown, PA, and earned Bachelor’s degrees in Marine Science and Chemistry in 2020. Following graduation, she moved to Lewes, DE to work as a laboratory technician working on microplastics in Delaware’s Inland Bays, as well as researching blue crab reproduction in Delaware Bay. During this time she became acquainted with the Center and volunteered with the annual horseshoe crab survey program and fish surveys. She then obtained her Master’s degree in Marine Biosciences from the University of Delaware where she continued blue crab research. While finishing her Master’s degree, she began an internship with the Center before accepting an offer for her current position.

In her spare time, she can be found out on the beaches and trails taking photos, biking, paddle boarding, or lounging with a book in hand!
