Owner & CEO
Ms. Taylor is an award-winning consultant, artist, and photographer with a background in communications, marketing, and fine arts. Ms. Taylor was recently awarded the Saskatchewan Premier’s Award for Innovation for her integral involvement in the development of the ground breaking BPRC Approach: Working to Build Safer and Healthier Communities Across the Province. Ms. Taylor is also a Co-Founder and Senior Advisor for the Global Network for Community Safety, an organization that aims to create a fundamental shift in the way society understands and achieves community safety and well-being.
In her personal life, Ms. Taylor is also an artist, having graduated from the Ontario College of Art and Design with a Bachelor of Fine Art in Drawing and Painting. As part of that education, Ms. Taylor was fortunate enough to have been accepted to the Florence program and spent a year studying art in Italy. This education and experience served to not only enhance her understanding of art, but also her understanding of visual communication and verbal and visual symbolism; an understanding that informs much of her work today.
Building on her education in art, her formal education in Business Marketing, as well as her skills and experience with design and media tools, Ms. Taylor has worked to bridge some of the long established gaps in the visual and verbal areas of communications with her strategic approach messaging and storytelling. Her greatest strength is that she can speak three key languages: Art, Business, and Technology.
