Her professional experiences mentoring individuals, serving as Associate Dean of Diversity at Yale and Director of the Center on Precision Health in Diverse Populations, and assisting universities and academic departments in weaving health equity into the strategic planning process led her to establish Taylor Professional Coaching, LLC (TPC).
