Taylor Radey (@taylorlauren) is a senior consultant at PR 20/20. She joined the agency in April 2013 with a background in digital and content marketing. She is a 2009 graduate of the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University, where she received a Bachelor of Science in Journalism, with a focus in public relations.
For as long as Taylor can remember, she’s been writing—and has a trunk full of old notebooks to prove it. Journal entries, short stories and even newspaper reporting on the latest news around her house—Taylor’s love of the written word led her to study journalism at Ohio University’s E.W. Scripps School, and to pursue a career in the prose-heavy world of modern marketing.
At PR 20/20, Taylor is eager to be part of a fast-paced and rapidly evolving industry, working alongside a talented, ambitious and fun-loving team. “I am continually impressed by the passion and abilities of my co-workers,” says Taylor. “They motivate me to be better.”
“Digital marketing requires an understanding of human behavior, business strategy and technology. All three disciplines are in a constant state of change, which makes every day a new challenge,” says Taylor. “I’m constantly hopping from left brain to right, and always—every single day—learning something new.”
“Marketing is also, now more than ever, tied to real business impact. Solving a problem or executing a strategy that brings tangible results to a client’s business is challenging, rewarding and often a whole lot of fun.”
Taylor’s interests include traveling, running, hiking, cooking and good conversation with friends—whether around a campfire or in a favorite dive bar.
Personally and professionally, Taylor is passionate about constantly learning and challenging herself, and surrounding herself with people she enjoys and respects.
“I’m inspired by the formal and informal mentors I’ve been fortunate to have. They’ve taught me that true leaders put others first, and that professional success begins and ends with being a good person.”
Fact #2: She has completed one full marathon and seven half marathons.
Fact #3: Taylor and her husband watched all seven seasons of Boy Meets World consecutively. It was awesome.
Taylor is extremely intelligent and talented. "She delivers high-quality work that gains the trust of her colleagues and clients—a skill that will take her far in her career."
"She's really good at processing information and staying organized so that nothing falls between the cracks."
"She's a great person to bounce ideas off of." And, "she's also quite the fashionista!"
Taylor is a natural leader—a standard she sets through example. "Her 'get it done' attitude, coupled with her dedication to her work and clients, provides a motivating atmosphere."
She is thoughtful, and always willing to set aside time for others to help bounce around ideas, offer feedback or provide helpful tips for staying productive.
We'd be remiss if we didn't mention her sense of humor. And, one team member warns, "...her Arrested Development mug will one day be mine!"
"Taylor is basically the bomb.com."
