Taylor Cole, Digital Marketing Specialist
Q: How many years have you been with GOED?
A: I started with GOED in March 2017 as an information specialist for our research department. In July 2017, I moved to our marketing department into my current role.
Q: What is the most surprising thing you've learned about economic development?
A: Everything! I had very little background with economic development prior to working for GOED. I love how every department in our office plays a role in helping the great people of South Dakota and beyond.
Q: If you could sum up GOED's purpose, what would that be?
A: Maintaining and growing South Dakota businesses and communities, one person at a time.
Q: How do you and your family like to spend time together?
OUTDOORS! 😃 I grew up spending lots of time on the Missouri River boating, tubing, wakeboarding, fishing; skiing and snowboarding at Terry Peak; and walking the fields at my dad’s hunting lodge. I’m so lucky that I still get to enjoy all of these things with my family and introduce my niece and nephews to the same experiences that I had growing up.
Q: Tell us a fun fact about yourself!
A: I have had one or more puppies every spring for the last three years. This brings me to a grand total of 9 hunting fools that I get to love on every day!
