After 18 years in the media research field, Taryn decided it was time for a change and came to First Pacific as Chief Operations Officer. She has a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Portland State University and has always had a passion for working with people. It was this passion that drew her to our amazing client service and corporate mission which aims to make a difference in the world. A few of Taryn’s unique skills include quoting movies, reciting all 50 states in order, and telling her favorite joke that always gets a laugh. (Next time you see her, ask her to tell it!) Fanatic Portland Thorns soccer fan, drinking coffee, sideline soccer momager, avid paddleboarder, ravenous reader, and holding impromptu dance parties with her two girls are some of her favorite pastimes.
