    Owner-13 years in industry

    I have been working in the automotive retail industry for 13 years. I joined my father, Jim Taylor, as a sales consultant in 2005, and I am very proud to continue running Jim Taylor Chevrolet Buick  and Jim Taylor Ford Lincoln with the same philosophy that he taught me. My goal is to develop relationships with our customers. We are not here to sell you something: we are here to serve you by making it easy and convenient and enjoyable to buy and care for your cars.

    My husband Mark and I have been married for 21 years, and we have three children: Sarah, Nathan and Cole. We live in Monroe.
