Dr. Taylor has been a nurse for over 25 years. Beginning her career as a associate degree nurse, she has worked in icu, home health, and psychiatry. Her passion for psychiatry prompted her to want to improve the care she could provide to the patients she served. She returned to nursing school and completed a Nurse Practitioner program at Vanderbilt University, in Nashville, Tennesee. During her employment with a local tribal facility she realized a need for improved access to mental health services.
She was enrolled in a DNP program and during this time she implemented a telemental health clinic for the patients she served. Now sustained by the facility she continues to provide a telemental health clinic to those patients who have limited access to Mental Health services.
