After taking a year off to attend Western Washington University, where she studied Theatre Arts and Education, Taylor couldn’t stay away any longer and rejoined the staff at the Anacortes Club as Program Director in July 2011. Taylor moved into the position of Club Director in August 2015 after serving as Interim Director . She has proven to be well suited to the position.
Her passions outside of the Club include theatre – she can be seen in at least one show a year with the Anacortes Community Theatre – and photography. Taylor lives in Burlington, with her husband Noah and daughter Hadley.

Originally from California, He earned his BA in Global Studies from California State University Monterey Bay and a MA in Easter European Studies from University College London.
Quick with a smile and a fun-loving joke, the kids in Anacortes are warming up to Andrew fast. As an avid baseball fan, he has been to 11 Major League parks and countless minor league parks, even playing bingo at the park once.  Andrew is a steadfast 49ers fan, but the club members are quick to remind him that this is Seahawks country.
