Taylor Scott joined the Urban Gateways staff in 2020, where she serves as the Development Coordinator. Her work focuses on advancing individual giving initiatives while supporting the Development team in all of the facets of fundraising. Prior to Urban Gateways, Taylor worked as the Box Office and Patron Services Manager for the Lake Forest Symphony, as well as working part time for the Lakeview Orchestra. She has extensive training in CRM management and Salesforce. Having graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Music Performance from Lawrence University, her passion for the arts combined with her love of organization and events led to a career in the arts non-profit sector. In her spare time she writes sketch comedy, volunteers for PAWS Chicago, and shamelessly enjoys terrible reality television. She lives on the northwest side of Chicago with her husband and cat, whom they affectionately call “The Cat”.
