I am a proud resident of Baltimore, Maryland. I am an avid Ultimate Frisbee player and dancing enthusiast. I enjoy learning, crafting, traveling, socializing, and supporting others. I have skills in event planning, program management, research and analysis, writing and editing, and relationship building.
In my professional life, I support a talented international team of colleagues in ongoing investigative projects involving large multicenter clinical trials. Working alongside a diverse group of faculty members, researchers, clinicians, statisticians, data analysts, and coordinators, I provide administrative and programmatic support for the Center for Clinical Trials and Evidence Synthesis at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. I collaborate with internal and external stakeholders to plan research meetings, prepare agendas and minutes, coordinate travel, and manage academic activities within the Center. I support the Center Director with guidance and fiscal oversight of federally funded projects for Principal Investigators within the Center.
My research focuses on suicide and mental health. With interdisciplinary training in the social sciences and lived experience supporting a loved one through a suicidal period, I bring a unique perspective for understanding the actionable implications of supporting others through mental health crises. My other research interests include stigma, public health, violent acts, youth and child development, children and families, education, urban sociology, and languages and cultures.
I was inspired to launch Taylor Made Resumes when I recognized that friends and family members struggled to pitch themselves with clear, concise, and laudable language to potential employers. My aim as a Resume Consultant and Editor is that each client will feel proud of their skills, feel empowered to own and modify their resume going forward, and feel good about marketing themselves as a candidate for their next job application.
I was a Maryland girl living a good southern life in North Carolina and Tennessee, then I relocated to my home in the Old Line State in 2017. During the COVID days of 2020, I took up knitting, and met the love of my life. We got engaged and married on June 11, 2022 during an outdoor SURPRISE WEDDING attended by 200 friends and relatives.
In my free time, I love making memories with family and friends. Indoors, I like cozy relaxing evenings with sweet treats and delicious beverages, and inspiring bursts of energy for organizing and creating. Outdoors, I like long runs, adventurous bike rides, intimate nature hikes, and playing Ultimate Frisbee. While traveling, I like exploring off the beaten path, watching live performances, and eating everything. To spot me in an airport, I am identifiable by my mix-matched socks, my chattiness with strangers, and boisterous laughter over unfunny puns.
I look forward to learning about your story. My favorite topics to chat about are suicide research, resume editing, social impact, child development, and cooking faux pas. What's important to you? Let me know in an email to taylormb[at]binnix.net.
I hope to hear from you soon :-]
