Taylor has a BA degree in Communications with a minor in Advertising from California State University, Fullerton. Throughout her professional career, Taylor has worked in very interesting industries, always working her way up to Managerial positions. This has given her a wide range of knowledge and experience in mastering business. During college she worked full-time at an esteemed environmental laboratory that specialized in water testing, where she became a Project Manager servicing her own clients. After graduating from college, she landed a job at Universal Music Group, Interscope Records, where she was a Marketing Manager responsible for handing artists’ budgets across the entire label. It was there that she met Greg Marella (Amy’s husband) and the rest is flower history.
