Changemaker of the Month: Taylor Eckerson

Taylor Eckerson

Taylor Eckerson

Taylor joined Vertical Harvest right when the greenhouse doors opened in 2016. She’s worked her way from volunteer, to greenhouse job support, to her current vital role juggling special projects for administration, finance, operations, and payroll. Taylor is a constant source of positive energy, a great sounding board for any idea, and knows the answer to pretty much every question.

As coworker Chris Hogberg puts it, “Taylor is the glue that helps the crew push on through!” Taylor knows what we all need before we do. We’re not sure how she does it but she knows our schedules, our next questions, and helps all of us and the company get to the next level.

“Taylor is DEDICATED,” says Co-Founder Caroline Croft Estay (adding the all caps for emphasis). “She lives the Vertical Harvest mission, she supports and empowers all of the Vertical Harvest team and creates an impact that is consistent and profound. I am grateful to have her on our team.”

She even has a Vertical Harvest logo tattoo. Now that’s dedication!
