Meet Independent Financial Service’s newest Marketing Coordinator and Administrative Assistant, Taylor Kelly. Many of you are familiar with our senior Marketing Coordinator, Kayla Haggard. Kayla and Taylor have been friends for several years and when Kayla decided to change career paths to Nursing school, we eagerly welcomed Taylor aboard our team. She has been with us for a little over 3 months now and it is hard to imagine our team without her. She is from Plant City, Florida and previously worked as a hair stylist. She started her own business at the young age of 17 and eventually decided her heart is in the Finance Industry. This year Taylor is working on pursuing her Bachelors in Finance at USF. We call her a “Jill of All Trades” because she wears many hats here. Taylor is who you will speak with regarding attending events, scheduling appointments, back office paperwork and any general marketing inquiries. Her long-term goal is to be a Financial Advisor.
While Taylor is extremely polished in appearance, many people may not think she knows much about the outdoors or agriculture. However, in high school Taylor showed steers and was an active member of the FFA (Future Farmers of America). She owns a pot belly pig, two baby chickens, eight goats and a cat. Talk about a handful!
When Taylor is not busy planning events and coordinating fresh marketing ideas, she enjoys most anything outdoors, styling brides and their bridesmaids, attending Tampa Bay Lightning games and spending time with her closest friends and family.
Taylor’s favorite quote is: “Be a warrior when it comes to delivering your own ambitions. And a saint when it comes to treating people with respect, modeling generosity and showing up with outright love.” – Robin S. Sharma
