After her appearance in Playboy, Taylor moved to Los Angeles and began an acting career that included a guest-starring appearance on Baywatch as Taylor Johnson, as well as roles and appearances on: Malcolm and Eddie, Weird Al Show, Keenen Ivory Wayans Show, Horace Brown's music video, "Things We Do for Love" (Brett Ratner, director) and guest hosting on E!.
Growing up in Orlando, Taylor was the quintessential "girl next door" who attended a private Catholic school and was "an altar server the first year the Pope declared girls could serve". Karin also worked as a lifeguard at Wet n Wild before entering the "entertainment industry" as a dancer for Walt Disney World in their Electric Light Parade (1989–1990)
Taylor began her modeling career at age 17, when she was discovered by the Ford Modeling agency in Miami. During her ten-year modeling career, she was represented around the world by such agencies as Wilhelmenia NYC, Agence Unique (Greece), ICE Model Management (South Africa) and David and Lee Models Chicago. She first appeared on television as a Spokesmodel Contestant on Ed McMahon's Star Search, which began filming in Orlando that year (1992).
Taylor briefly returned to her modeling roots and walked the runway one last time, for New York fashion designer Betsey Johnson, in her Spring 2001 collection, which was later made into a documentary.
