Rachel Taylor

Rachel Taylor owns and operates Global Recruiters of Salt Lake City along with her husband, Pete Taylor.

Outside of work, Rachel’s love of all things flora and fauna is deep, and started in the wide open farmland of 1960s Lehi, Utah. She is actively and passionately involved in conservation efforts for the monarch butterfly. Having grown up in rural Utah, where monarchs were plentiful, she realized how rarely she saw them after 40 years in Salt Lake City, and dug in to learn why. It turns out the monarch butterfly population has plummeted in the past four decades – the population west of the Rockies declining 99% during that time. The larger eastern population is nearly as bleak. After ordering her first seeds in 2015, Rachel recently founded Utah Friends of Monarchs, an official 501(c)(3).
