Senior Director – PR & Marketing
As senior director of public relations and marketing Taylor Shields is responsible for raising the awareness for Global Down Syndrome Foundation’s research, medical care, education, and advocacy through earned, digital, and produced media.
Taylor traded the neon lights of Las Vegas for the crystal blue skies of Colorado when joining Global in 2016. For the previous eight years her work focused on food & beverage, hospitality, and travel as she worked in house with Wynn Resorts Las Vegas, Caesars Entertainment Las Vegas, and Michael Mina restaurants nationally. She earned her bachelor’s degree from Washington University in St. Louis, majoring in both psychology and American culture studies.
A third generation Colorado native, Taylor looks forward to rediscovering her state. She also enjoys hiking, gardening, reading, traveling, dining, and cheering on her hometown Denver Broncos and adopted St. Louis Cardinals.
