Get to know the Unrivald heroes
Taylor’s experience writing and researching for various industries helps her understand client needs and effectively communicate on their behalf.
She’s a word-nerd, and loves to write and edit. Long before her marketing career began she authored a personal finance blog that had a substantial following in its niche community for about 5 years. Since then she’s written blogs and web social content for clients in a variety of industries including accountants, authors, musicians, and non-profit arts organizations.
Her people skills come from her time as an executive assistant for a boutique business advisory firm. Anticipating the needs of both her team and their clients has also made her an organizational ninja with killer follow up. Her favourite question is “Okay, so what’s the action item”?
Helping clients be successful is a large part of what drives her work. She truly believes that words can change the world if you use the right ones.
Off the job, Taylor has a secret identity as a performer. She dances with The Sugar Sweets for fun, but she has trained and worked as a professional opera singer. She has sung all across Canada, as well as in Dubai, The Netherlands, and the UK. Here at home, she sings with the Calgary Opera Company chorus.
Taylor and her partner enjoy going camping and hiking, and trying to perfect their old fashioned recipe. Taylor is also a terrible yet enthusiastic gardener, but doesn’t mind because it’s all just an excuse to spend time outside with her labradoodle, Max.

Shaheen is the guy you want in your corner when you’ve got a complex problem to solve in the next 15 minutes.
