Taylor hails from Denver, Colorado. She first discovered her loves of coding and education in her undergraduate years at Carleton College, where she majored in physics. After graduating from Carleton in 2013, she went on to join Teach for America as a high school physics teacher in Fall River, MA, where she also received her Master of Education in Curriculum and Teaching from Boston University. In 2015, Taylor taught beginner courses in software engineering to high school students in Austin, TX. She was invigorated by the incredible learning and projects of her students that summer and is amazed by the creation that is possible through collaboration, determination, and coding.
