Taelor considers herself not only to be an astute businesswoman, but also a community advocate. From a young age, she has worked with local organizations like Los Angeles Brotherhood Crusade and Mothers in Action, providing resources to members of our community most in need of support and services.
She is continuing her family’s legacy of service to the community and sees her role as the next generation of Bakewell’s bringing opportunity to some of California’s most under resourced communities. Taelor is also a Los Angeles African American Women’s Public Policy Institute Alumni, a graduate of USC’s Ross Real Estate Development program and a member of New Frontier Democratic Club.
