Taylor was born and raised in rural Alaska. She grew up in a home with many animals: cats, dogs, guinea pigs, hamsters, and fish. In addition to caring for her family’s menagerie, she spent many weekends in high school volunteering at her local animal shelter. In 2013, Taylor moved to the Portland area. She worked in grocery, retail, and local government administration for several years but working with animals remained her true passion. She decided to pursue that passion and is excited to bring her client service experience, interest in animal biology and behavior, and lifelong love of cats to CCP. Taylor lives in Lake Oswego with her significant other and their two feline companions, Ginger and Oliver.
