Taryn claims to have started her career when she was 11 years old, having always worked alongside her mother in place of going to school. Don’t tell her mum she was fibbing about being sick! She leaped into a career path that was sure to end with her in a secret government science facility. Alas, it didn’t get that far – after rejecting a life of research she joined the workforce as a Genetic Scientist.
