Taylor Stratton was born in Orlando, FL, but grew up in Colorado on her family’s working cattle ranch. She graduated from Cheyenne Mountain High School in Colorado Springs, and attended CU Boulder from 2009-2013 where she triple majored studying Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Environmental Studies, and Geography. During her time at CU she volunteered as a Student Ambassador, studied abroad in Tanzania, and was lucky enough to run with Ralphie (the greatest mascot in the nation). After graduating, Taylor started her professional career with the Office of Admissions where she participated in recruiting the most academically talented and diverse class in CU’s history. Taylor also began volunteering for the Ralphie Live Mascot program, and is completing her second season as an Assistant Coach. In her free time, Taylor enjoys supporting CU Athletics, country swing dancing, eating cheese in all forms, and hiking with her dog. Taylor is thrilled to be joining the Alumni Association as the Student and Young Alumni Program Manager and can’t wait to dive in!
