Taylor McKenzie

Taylor arrived at JS in 2017 after a young career packed with marketing, PR and nonprofit work. A member of the Delta team, she frequently embeds at Delta HQ, where she works on marketing and communications projects for the airline’s Cargo division.

At Berry College, Taylor studied visual communication and served as editor-in-chief of the student art and literature magazine and president of the student marketing club. After graduating, she joined the Gainesville Theatre Alliance, where her marketing and fundraising efforts helped the nonprofit expand its programming. Taylor then joined a boutique marketing agency, where she hobnobbed with CEOs of multibillion-dollar real estate companies and developed her copywriting, social media and media-buying skills.

Ever-disciplined, Taylor is passionate about seeing her projects through to completion, despite challenges. It’s a talent she developed during her youth, as a classically trained opera singer. The budding soprano joined her first choir at age 3, excelled on the violin, and sung at several competitions. Her performance background helps her client work, as she admits she is “obsessive” about putting her best foot forward under pressure.

Taylor lives in Smyrna with her 20-pound Pomeranian. She credits her coastal Massachusetts upbringing for her tendency to talk (and drive) fast, but now calls herself a Southerner. A member of the Junior League of Atlanta, she is looking forward to getting back into the music scene, either as a choir leader or participant.
