During these years Mrs. Taylor performed thousands of chemistry lab tests on Johns Hopkins' patients, rising to become one of the lab's supervisors, and finally the lab's manager. In the 1980's Mrs. Taylor worked with the faculties of the then Villa Julie College and Essex Community College, setting up their two year programs for Medical Laboratory Technicians. She taught Clinical Chemistry to their students and supervised their rotations through The Johns Hopkins Clinical Chemistry Laboratory. She retired in 1986.
