Taylor Alexandra - Communications Coordinator

Born in Toronto, Ontario and raised in Digby, Nova Scotia, Taylor is very appreciative of her family's decision to relocate to the east coast. Although she is keen to explore new places, she consistently finds herself returning to this part of the world, and always experiences a sense of coming home.

Taylor completed her undergraduate studies at Dalhousie in Sustainability and International Development in December, 2017. In 2015, Taylor participated in an experiential learning program offered on Haida Gwaii, British Columbia, where she learned about natural resource management and environmental science from a series of stakeholders and professionals, including government officials, ecologists, members of the Haida First Nation, and representatives of the forestry industry on the islands. In 2016, Taylor's decision to work in partnership with the Environmental Noxiousness, Racial Inequities & Community Health (ENRICH) Project for her final year of study helped her cultivate a deeper awareness of the ways in which colonialism continues to emerge and manifest both in the Nova Scotia narrative and globally.

Taylor's expressive outlets include visual art, and Kundalini yoga practice. She is the joyous owner of Primordial Yoga, a yoga initiative in the Hydrostone.

In February 2018, Taylor began her role as the ECELAW Communications Coordinator. She is enthusiastic about making language, that is otherwise academic and exclusive to a particular profession, accessible to the general public.
