Taylor is a Chartered Professional Accountant with over ten years of accounting experience in external audit, government, non-for-profits, and private corporations. He has worked directly with numerous non-profit organizations throughout his career and previously held the role of Treasurer for a Vancouver Island-based non-profit focused on mental health education and awareness.

Originally born in Rossland, BC, Taylor moved to Victoria to attend University. He stayed and worked in Victoria for 12 years before feeling the pull of his Kootenay roots. Skiing, mountain biking, and golfing have always been an integral part of Taylor’s life, and wanting to share these activities with his newborn son ultimately led him back to the Kootenays. Now residing in Nelson, Taylor brings his genuine commitment to community engagement to the KCDS board he serves on. He hopes his background, financial acumen, and deep-rooted ties to the Kootenays make him an asset to this great organization that continues to change the region positively.
