Taylor Western grew up in Fresno, California, then attended Chico State University for college. Her family moved to Spokane, WA her senior year of college. She began her master’s in Communication Disorders at Eastern New Mexico University, and moved to Spokane to do her final internships so she could spend more time with her younger brother Clay, who has autism. She began as a student at Joya Child & Family in January 2015, and loved the staff’s team work, energy and commitment to the families. She then decided to make Spokane her permanent home and accepted her first job as speech therapist at Joya in the summer of 2015.
