Taylor Heeden | Reporter |  | @HeedenTaylor

Taylor Heeden is a North Carolina native from Goldsboro. She graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill in 2020, and she worked in Johnston County as a reporter for The Johnstonian News before coming to Chatham County. She is passionate about telling the stories of ordinary people doing extraordinary things in their community, as well as keeping communities aware of the decisions being made impacting them. When she is not typing furiously on her laptop to make deadlines, Taylor can be found watching true crime docuseries while sipping on a cup of coffee or tea.
