Taylor is a project manager at Action Research where she specializes in changing human behavior through the application of traditional marketing activities blended with cutting edge research findings from the social and behavioral sciences. In her spare time, she also manages social media for Joel Sartore, founder of the National Geographic Photo Ark. Previously, Taylor worked for the Houston Zoo’s conservation department where she helped develop behavior change campaigns to protect species like sea turtles, whooping cranes, and ocelots. A native Texan, it was through travels as a teen to work with leatherback sea turtles in Trinidad, brown hyenas in South Africa, and elephants in Namibia that Taylor ultimately decided to pursue a career in wildlife conservation. Taylor received her bachelor’s degree in anthropology from Texas A&M University and her MSc in primate conservation from Oxford Brookes University where she focused her studies on understanding human-wildlife interactions and identifying ways to reduce and transform conflict.
