Taylor, a born and raised Tulsan, was part of the very first cohort of our Thrive Tulsa program in 2018. She’s currently pursuing her Master of Urban Forestry Leadership while serving as the Program Director at Up with Trees.
The mission of Up With Trees is empowering, educating, and serving communities by utilizing trees for their environmental, economic, and social benefits. Since 1976, Up With Trees has officially planted nearly 40,000 trees to expand and nurture Tulsa’s urban canopy.
A quote that Taylor carries with her from her Thrive experience: “Don’t do anything affecting the community without asking them to be there,” Rose Washington-Jones, CEO of TEDC Creative Capital.
