Taylor Stephens grew up in Oxford, Mississippi where she earned a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Mississippi in Psychology and English Literature. She moved to Burlington for graduate school and has recently attained a Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Her clinical background has focused on working with youth experiencing behavioral and emotional challenges resulting from trauma. For the last few years, she has also helped lead a research team focused on studying and spreading Restorative Justice throughout the state of Vermont.
Taylor absolutely loves Burlington and the sense of community it encourages. She is most passionate about helping empower others around her and looks forward to building a community in and around Mansfield Hall! When she isn’t working, you can find her reading sci-fi or fantasy novels, planning a trip, organizing board game nights, or cooking with her friends.
