Taylor Strategies was founded by Sandy Taylor and is headquartered in Tallahassee, Florida. The firm serves clients across the state and strives to support those who are dedicated to creating positive change through our great country’s democratic process.
As a native of Tallahassee and 5th generation Floridian, Sandy has a deep-rooted passion for Florida and its future. Her family is steeped in service to others including a grandfather who served as Mayor of Leesburg, Florida; another grandfather who served 20 years as a port commissioner in Fort Lauderdale; a father who dedicated a lifetime of service in law enforcement; and a brother who gave 20 years in the Marine Corps as a Harrier Pilot. Through these influences, Sandy was inspired to engage in the political process that shapes the future of our country and began a path leading to Taylor Strategies, Inc.
After graduating from Florida State University with a double-major in English Literature and Political Science, Sandy first stepped into the chambers of the Florida Capitol serving then-Senate Majority Leader Daniel Webster as a policy analyst. She went on to cut her teeth in political fundraising by accepting a position as Director of Candidate Fundraising with the Republican Party of Florida, Senate Campaigns, at which time she was responsible for raising campaign funds for all nine Senate incumbents up for re-election in the 2008 election cycle. At the request of then-Senate President Designate Jeff Atwater, Sandy moved to Palm Beach County and served as Atwater’s campaign manager in what was a key race in the 2008 cycle. Upon a victorious campaign, Sandy moved back home to Tallahassee and served Senate President Atwater as the Director of External Communications. Here she enjoyed her passion for writing and communications, but quickly realized she missed the high paced excitement of campaigns. In late 2007, Sandy stepped back into fundraising at the encouragement of two important mentors in her career. The rest is history having now worked with over 40 state-level campaigns and political committees. Sandy has also worked with renowned and well-respected ContributionLink — an essential data-driven service tailored to fundraising in Florida. Sandy resides in Tallahassee, FL with her husband, two young children, and their beloved labradoodle. Her passions include time with her family and friends, home renovation design, weekends at St. Teresa Beach, and running — when life provides the time to do so!
