STRENGTH COURAGE & WISDOM Honoree
Taylor Gardner is the Founder and CEO of The Garden Foundation. A driven, compassionate and goal oriented woman, determined to enhance the lives of those with disabilities.

Previous to starting the Foundation, Taylor was a Business Development Manager for an insurance brokerage. Always involved in the disability community, Taylor has served on boards for the Down Syndrome Organization of Southern Nevada as well as the Young Professional Board for Opportunity Village. She also managed the Las Vegas Learning Program, a supplemental educational program for children with Down Syndrome.
