There is a new face in the advertising department of the Taylor Press.
Regina Miller-Taylor, the lead advertising rep, has been made the bi-weekly newspaper her home since her first day, Aug. 28.
“Taylor is like home to me,” she said. “I feel at home here, even more than when I was in Rockdale, and it’s only a 30-minute drive.”
Originally from Milano, Taylor still lives there and commutes to town for work.
“I grew up there my whole life,” she said. “I liked playing with friends and going to church. But I’ve been working ever since I was 16 years old.
Taylor got her start in advertising at the Rockdale Reporter, and saw growth in the position.
“Once I got into sales, I saw that I could make my own job,” she said. “When you’re working as a teller, nine times out of 10, you’re not going to get a raise. In sales, you will make more money and there’s [more growth in that field].”
She also worked in advertising at the Temple Daily Telegram.
Taylor believes she is a people person, as she her hobbies include helping and meeting new people and shopping.
She hopes to make lots of new friends and help connect businesses with the Taylor Press.
