Members of the board
Taylor Stafford, BSN, RN (She/Her/Hers)
Chief Executive Officer & founder
Taylor grew up in Seattle, Washington, and Livermore, California, and then attended nursing school at The University of Nevada, Reno. While there, she found her passion for sexual education, sex crime prevention, and societal sexual stigma awareness. Taylor originally started Women Against Taboo as an educational sex blog for college students. Soon after that, she began public speaking for fraternities and sororities on various sex-related topics. In 2018, when Taylor was just 22-years-old, she transformed her passion into a non-profit organization, The Women Against Taboo Foundation. She then began her nursing career at Seattle Children's Hospital on the Pediatric Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine Unit, where she cared for children and adolescents suffering from mental illnesses. She is now attending grad school at Regis College to obtain her Doctorate in Nursing Practice and anticipates graduating in 2024. Taylor is excited to see how her passions will positively impact society through the goals of The W.A.T. Foundation.
Cindy Stafford (She/Her/Hers)
Chief Operations Officer
Cindy currently lives in Lake Stevens, Washington and is the mother of Taylor (CEO) and Collin (CFO). When Taylor began Women Against Taboo, it soon became a Stafford family mission. Not only does Cindy share Taylor's passion for sexual education but she has been a key participant in starting The Women Against Taboo non-profit Foundation. We are so thankful to have her as part of our team!
Collin Stafford (he/him/his)
Chief financial Officer
Collin received his Bachelor's in Accounting from Washington State University and then earned a Master's Degree as a Certified Public Accountant from Seattle University. He currently works as a CPA for Moss Adams, an accounting firm in Seattle, Washington. As the younger brother of our founder Taylor, he quickly became a team player for The Women Against Taboo Foundation. He currently manages all finances and fundraising for the foundation, and his hard work and dedication do not go unnoticed.
