Jen Taylor, Brand Manager & Director of Creative Development Mountain Khakis

“1993: the year I started my career path in the outdoor industry. 2000: the year I met Thea Chase and truly began to carve that career path. Pregnant with my second child, I met Thea - then Executive Director of the Business Incubator Center – to review a business my sisters and I had purchased, and vet the new business model I was developing. The company was Mountain Sprouts®, Children’s Adventure Outfitter. Thea guided me through the growth and eventual sale of my company to Mountain Khakis®, where I’m currently the creative director & brand manager. We have established a long history since then; she remains my mentor to this day. Thea knows business. She knows economic development. She knows the outdoor industry. She is a tireless advocate for small business and has a 25-year history of getting things done for the West Slope. I enthusiastically support her candidacy for HD54.” Jen Taylor, Brand Manager & Director of Creative Development // Mountain Khakis
