Taylor cut her teeth in politics while attending UW Milwaukee in the mid-90’s where she was a multi-year student senator with the Student Association, Vice President of the Free Burma Coalition and President of the College Democrats at UWM, running student voter and civic engagement campaigns. After college she spent two years leading United Council of UW Students before becoming involved in partisan politics, working on campaigns across the country from local and statewide races, including two presidential campaigns. In 2008 Taylor directed her sites on advocacy and nonpartisan civic engagement efforts to ensure every eligible voter could participate in our democracy.

She currently serves as Executive Director of Community Shares of Greater Milwaukee, leads organizing work through LatinxVoice in the Latino community, and functions as fundraiser and program director for High Ground’s diverse organizational work. Taylor serves as the Executive Vice President of Development for Milwaukee Pride Inc, an all-volunteer nonprofit that runs one of the nation’s largest Pride festivals over three days each June. In her free time, she enjoys the burgeoning indie music scene in Milwaukee, exploring the urban landscape on her bicycle and catering to every whim of her horses, Jorge & Reno, and Jack Russell, Bones.
