Her stories have exposed many wrongs, including the violation of special education laws, the punishment of soldiers dealing with the mental stress of combat, the mistreatment of Washington state foster youth, and the needless separation of children from their parents.

Taylor’s investigations have prompted public policy changes and created new state laws. In response to Taylor’s 2022 series, “Predator on Guard”, in 2023 the Washington state legislature passed “Kimberly Bender’s Law.” The law raised the penalties for sexually offensive corrections officers.

Taylor’s multimedia digital projects about subjects like recidivism, racial identity, and sex trafficking showcase her dedication to building deep relationships with individuals in the community and capturing powerful details regarding their experiences.

In 2020, Taylor aided in launching and executing Facing Race, a 13-week series about race, social injustice, and racial inequality in the Pacific Northwest. In addition, she worked on the Peabody Award-winning series as a producer, reporter, photojournalist, and content editor.

Murrow Awards, two Peabody Awards, a Scripps Howard Award, and 11 regional Emmy Awards. Taylor has been documented among America’s best young journalists as a Livingston Award finalist two times.

Before coming to the KING 5 team in July 2016, she served as a digital reporter at WCPO in Cincinnati, Ohio, where she exclusively produced in-depth, enterprise news stories for WCPO-TV and WCPO.com. In 2014, she embedded with U.S. military troops in Afghanistan to report on the local effect of America’s longest war.
