New Leaders Council

Meet our fellows: Korey Taylor

Leading up to the graduation of our 2017 fellows, we will be introducing you to members of the 2017 class. Let's chat with Korey Taylor. 


Tell us a little about yourself.
I'm a recent Omaha transplant and married father of one looking to give back to my community. I want to work with like minded people and people who think adverse to me in social and civic circles to increase our community engagement and inclusion. I am a defense attorney, so I spend my days advocating for people who need representation, to protect their rights, and to make a tough situation a little more amenable.

What attracted you to the New Leaders Council?

The opportunity to gain political and entrepreneurship training while also broadening my network and connections here in Omaha. The chance to join a movement of people striving for change in dozens of communities across our country.

What have you gotten out of the fellowship?

The fellowship has augmented my zeal for service and made me look inward to see if there are other areas I can serve, whether that be in service to community, in the political arena, or as a judge.

Why do you love Omaha?

Omaha really is a community where the degrees of separation can be navigated. After a short time being here, I have met someone who knows someone and been able to make new friends and associates that have helped my personal and professional development. And comparatively, traffic is pretty light!
