Taylore grew up in Orlando, FL. She found her way to Birmingham through Samford University where she played for the soccer team. She graduated from Samford with a Bachelor's in Religion followed by a Master of Social Work. Throughout her time at Samford, she fell in love with the city of Birmingham mostly through her involvement at her local church, Iron City Church.
Taylore is passionate about advocating for and championing vulnerable populations who may not have as much access to resources, social capital, or influence as other people. She believes that some of the deepest and most transformational work in our lives happens in community, even though community is often where some of our deepest hurts in our lives have occurred as well. She sees the Aspire Movement as an exciting and powerful way for mentors and students to experience the power, healing, and redemption that can occur in Christ-centered, mutually transforming relationships.
In her free time, Taylore enjoys reading, having friends around her dinner table, or exercising.
Her favorite Bible verse is Psalm 68:6. It has been her experience that the Lord does indeed desire to place the lonely into families, using the people of His church to work redemption, healing, and reconciliation in and among His people.
