Dr. Taylor was born and raised in the northern suburbs of Chicago. She received her undergraduate degree from The University of Chicago in Biological Sciences, and her MD from Rush Medical College. She then began a lengthy (yet very educational) detour through neurosurgical residency and research, but ultimately decided that the new field of pediatric neurocritical care would be the best field for her. So, she became a pediatric resident at Advocate Christ Medical Center/Hope Children's Hospital, graduated, and is now thrilled to be a PCCM fellow at UTHSC/Le Bonheur/St Jude, especially with its strong academic/research focus, excellent neurosurgery department, new NeuroICU, and great people.

 

When she is not working, Dr. Taylor loves to read, eat, explore whichever neighborhood she happens to be in, and listen to Christian music. She also enjoys photography and learning languages.

Dr. Tigges worked one year in pediatric urgent care while waiting for his wife, Elizabeth, to finish her OB/GYN residency.

Dr. Tigges and his wife both love Memphis and living on Mud Island. In their spare time they enjoy discovering restaurants, night life and attractions in all parts of the city. They are both rabid Iowa Hawkeye fans and wear their Iowa gear wherever they go. When they are not working, you can expect to find them traveling, entertaining friends, walking their chocolate lab, Reece, or parked on the couch watching college football.
