Jess Taylor

External Relations Specialist

 

In 2023, Jess became External Relations Specialist at the Business Council of Alberta, adjusting her responsibilities from her previous role as Communications & Administrative Coordinator.

Jess’ work at BCA includes managing the Council’s digital and social presence, developing the AlbertaBETTER newsletter, producing the AlbertaBETTER podcast series, coordinating and hosting meetings with members, community partners, and government stakeholders, and contributing to her flagship project, Alberta’s Mobile Vaccination Clinic (MVC) where she was the communications lead.

Jess is a passionate communicator with experience teaching, conducting research, and working within the public relations & marketing realms, varying her interests between health, research, and policy.

Completing her Master of Arts in Communication at Simon Fraser University, Jess focused her research on Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID), writing a thesis titled “Communicating Contentious Issues In Canada: Analyzing Media Discourse of Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID)” where she analyzed print media’s perception and presentation of the topic.

In her spare time she is often found working on her health, expanding her knowledge of new and exciting topics, listening to Korean music, and communicating with friends from around the world.
