Taryn was born and raised in Long Island, New York, as a middle child between two brothers and her childhood pups. She attended James Madison University, initially focusing on her love of history, until her curiosity led her to pursue translational research and she graduated with a B.S. in Biology. Following graduation, she fostered a passion for medicine and physiology as a Medical Assistant in Arlington, Virginia, and as a graduate student at Georgetown University, where she obtained a M.S. in Physiology and Biophysics. She returned to Long Island for medical school at Stony Brook University, where she studied the mechanistic role of a novel biomarker in cancer pathogenesis and found her interest in critical care. She is thrilled to join the Vanderbilt community where she is excited to continue her love of running, live music, and pets, including her two cats. Member of AOA.
