Dr. Taylor is a busy IVF physician and also leads Olive's surrogacy program - she has helped hundreds of couples achieve a child through surrogacy. Dr. Taylor also loves the challenge and science of IVF for people struggling to conceive. She likes to try new ideas and new IVF protocols to get the best outcomes for Olive patients. She keeps up to date with the research literature and is open to trying novel procedures to try and solve even the most challenging fertility problems.
Dr. Taylor has 4 children and a cat, though she considers herself a dog person. Like most people, she enjoys hiking and travel but doesn't do either largely because of COVID and secondarily because of the aforementioned children. She reads non-fiction incessantly and considers herself a nerd, in a good way. She is fiercely proud of Olive and the people here and is always looking for ways to make it better. She is open to suggestions: email@example.com
