Communications Strategy Manager
Digital communications guru Paula Taylor comes to CRA via the West Virginia governor’s office – where she worked on multiple state websites – and 11 years at local television and print media outlets.
Paula has worked on various communications campaigns and projects throughout the years, which also has allowed her to learn the ins and outs of the digital world. She’s got a handful of certifications including Google Analytics/AdWords and Facebook Blueprint, to name a couple. Her excellent client relations skills combined with years of digital and marketing experience allow Paula to do everything from helping clients develop integrated strategy to simply suggesting ways to optimize clicks on their websites.
A Lincoln County farm girl who couldn’t wait to get off the farm, Paula majored in communications at Marshall University in Huntington, where she now resides. Paula was involved in the Facebook Journalism Project and has visited the social media giant’s facility in Dallas, Texas.
Outside the office, Paula loves to read, but much of her free time is devoted to her four-year-old Goldendoodle Oakley, who she discovered through multiple vet visits is allergic to most everything, including people. At the beginning of every week, she carefully prepares Oakley’s meals of turkey or chicken, rice or sweet potatoes and some kind of green vegetable. “He eats better than I do,” Paula said.
