ABOUT TAYLOR SCHMIDT
Taylor is passionate about helping nonprofit organizations change the world by using data to change nonprofit organizations. With a strong background in math and statistics, Taylor works to better understand complex data sets and translate them into meaningful insights. She uses her creativity to develop solutions that better harness the power of data.
Taylor came to Campbell & Company from Milliman, Inc., one of the world’s largest providers of actuarial services, where she worked as an Actuarial Analyst. In this role, she provided analysis and forecasting to a variety of clients in the healthcare sector, including health insurance companies, hospitals, large pharmaceutical companies, and state governments.
In addition to her professional roles, Taylor has served as a volunteer leader for a number of nonprofit organizations. At her alma mater, she served in various leadership roles across the planning, internal, and operations teams of Dance Marathon at the University of Michigan. Dance Marathon is the largest student-run nonprofit in the state of Michigan, raising funds and awareness for pediatric rehabilitation programs at two local children’s hospitals. Taylor later brought her love of Dance Marathon back to Chicago through the young professional focused Chicago Dance Marathon for Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital, where she pioneered a new chair position to motivate and support dancers during the event and now serves on the Children's Miracle Network Emerging Leaders board to organize the yearly event.
Taylor holds a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics from the University of Michigan with a concentration in Actuarial Mathematics as well as a minor in Spanish Language, Literature, and Culture. She studied abroad in Cuenca, Ecuador and is just one country away from hitting her goal of 30 countries before 30. Taylor has performed in the professional Jewish show choir, the Shining Lights, as well as upwards of 25 musical theatre productions.
