Meet Tara Taylor
Meet Tara Taylor, Pree regional manager serving our clients in the greater Portland area. Tara joined our team in 2021, and her diverse background has enabled her to thrive in the dynamic and ever-evolving cannabis industry. Her role allows her to connect directly with growers and ensure quality products are in the market.
She says, “I love working at Pree because the relationships I have with my clients and my team are built on trust, listening, and communication.”
Her favorite thing about the industry is the people and the plants. She expresses tremendous respect for growers and continues to be astounded by their hard work and dedication to honoring genetics.
Tara is passionate about the possibilities presented by cannabis, and she’s encouraged by the industry learning more about things like terpenes — how vital they are not only to the aroma and flavor of a strain but also how they work in synergy with cannabinoids to produce certain effects in the consumer.
Her vision for cannabis is that “we continue to lead the industry and educate consumers so they can make informed choices about using cannabis for optimal results. I believe cannabis has the power to help people, and I hope we continue to move away from an alcohol- and pharmaceutical-centered culture, and instead focus on how cannabis can assist people with anxiety, depression, chronic illness, and fatigue. I would like to see veterans who struggle with PTSD administered cannabis rather than pills and see how our society can heal.”
Tara has lived in Portland for twenty years but was born and raised in Central New York. Aside from her work in cannabis, she’s also worked in education, service, project management, and literary editing.
When she’s not at work what makes Tara feel free is poetry, being with her nieces and nephews, and spending time in her garden. She loves ferns and birds and forsythia in spring.
