Taylor Beecher - Employee Spotlight!
Taylor was introduced to KFW through a staffing agency that spoke very highly of the company in February 2021. She was excited at the opportunity to work with what sounded like such a great opportunity. After starting in reception, Taylor quickly saw that KFW lived up to its reputation and hopes to stay, grow, & eventually join the marketing team.
What did you expect it to be like prior to working for an engineering firm and how does that compare now?
I honestly wasn’t really sure what to expect... I was mostly excited to have a job again after being laid off during the pandemic, haha, but I guess I was surprised to learn all that goes into civil engineering. All the different steps, people & their jobs, and parts that go into each project. I have learned a lot in the short time that I’ve been here and I’m always grateful to learn new things!
Do you have a favorite quote?
“Maybe that’s enlightenment enough- to know that there is no final resting place of the mind; no moment of clarity. Perhaps wisdom is realizing how small I am, and unwise, and how far I have yet to go”- Anthony Bourdain
What would be your dream job?
My dream job would be to do something that marries two of my favorite interests- being creative and history so maybe a museum curator!
What's something you plan on doing in the next year that you've never done?
I really want to go to Hawaii and swim with sharks… hopefully delta variant takes a chill pill.
Would you rather meet your ancestors or descendants?
Given my interest in history, I think I would like to meet my ancestors.

I can always count on Taylor to bring her creative talents, diligence & positivity. Thank you for being open to taking on new challenges!
Taylor has been a delight to work with and be around since day one, she deserves the best recognition for everything she does to keep our office going!
These last couple of months I've seen Taylor take on numerous new responsibilities, and I can't imagine what the office would be like without her. Her organization and communication skills stand out to me most, and her positive attitude is always a highlight of the day!
