Taylor spent the first decade of her career in the wellness industry as a bodyworker, energy worker, and yoga teacher, earning her an expert status in the field. She worked as a medical massage therapist focusing on injury recovery and chronic issues but also treated each person holistically. Though she’s retired from massage, Taylor still teaches yoga occasionally, most recently in the form of videos designed to provide movement and stretching for people who spend a lot of time at a desk. After closing the bodywork chapter, Taylor shifted gears and entered the world of tech as a software engineer. As fate would have it, she now works for SonderMind, a company whose mission is to redesign behavioral healthcare to become more accessible, approachable, and utilized, bringing her worlds of wellness and tech together in a perfect circle.
