Taylor made their home in Seattle in 2022 after moving from the high desert of Bend, Oregon. Though baffled by the near-constant winter damp on this side of the Cascade Range, they are delighted to join the wonderful staff at Magnolia United Church of Christ (MUCC). Taylor graduated from Oregon State University with a degree in religious studies. The ways in which religion, linguistics, and feeling shape one another is of particular interest to them and they are excited to learn more while ensconced in the MUCC community. Outside of the church, Taylor loves nothing more than to curl up with tea, a good book, and a cat.
