Taylor joined WWAY in 2013 as a production assistant and sports videographer. After graduating from UNCW with a bachelor degrees in Communication Studies and History, she became the news photographer, where she covered everything from breaking news and severe weather to garden tours and festivals while behind the camera. Then in 2014 Taylor moved in front of the camera as a reporter. Taylor was born in New Jersey and lived in Illinois and New Hampshire before moving to North Carolina in high school. Growing up she spent most of her time on the stage acting in plays and musicals and dancing on a competitive dance team. She's called Wilmington home since 2010, and she wouldn't have it any other way. She instantly fell in love with the charms and character of the historic port town. When she's not reporting, you might not recognize her. That's because one of Taylor's favorite hobbies is cosplay, or dressing up as her favorite characters from books, movies, television, comics and more. She's cosplayed as everything from cartoon characters to superheroes. Who needs Halloween when you have conventions to attend? In 2016 Taylor adopted a pug named Rory, and it was love at first sight. When she's not in the newsroom she's adventuring with her furry companion and taking in all the Cape Fear has to offer. She loves to tell your stories, so drop her a line and tell her what's going on in your neighborhood.
