We periodically honor members of the community who make a meaningful contribution to our organization. HBF would like to acknowledge Taylor Wick, who is Rick’s Custom Fencing & Decking’s Director of Marketing & Community Outreach.
Wick is a member of our Board of Directors, and our Workforce Development Advisory Group. She has helped foster Rick’s involvement for HBF projects at HomePlate Youth Services, and Project Homeless Connect Washington County. Here’s a bit more about her.
Tell us about yourself:
My family started Rick’s Fencing in their backyard in 1980, so I like to say I’ve been with the company my whole life. In truth, I joined our sales team in 2011 after graduating from EOU and moved in to the role of Marketing Director in 2019.
How did you get involved in the HBF and what keeps you involved?
My good friend Gwen Ozaki referred me to the organization and invited me as her guest to the Gala which was an incredible introduction to the reach and impact of this organization. I was so impressed with what this board and organization accomplishes, and I found that their goals aligned exactly with the type of support that Rick’s wants to be involved in as well as what I personally want to be involved in.
What is a fun fact about you that not everyone knows?
I have competed in the Rebelle Rally, the longest women’s off-road navigation rally in the US four times, and I won the 4×4 class in 2019. I have a standing invitation to navigate for our sponsor Lexus if I ever want to compete again.
What is your favorite hobby?
I love to sing though I don’t do that as much anymore. I would say my favorite hobby currently is anything related to wine! My dad and I are in the process of starting a side venture producing and purchasing great Willamette Valley wines under the label Chandelier Vineyards, coming 2024!
