Founder and Co-CEO Y.B. Normal?
Logan Taylor grew up in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Having it easy is never a phrase you would use to describe Logan Taylor’s childhood. Raised by his grandmother in low-income housing and with an absentee father and barely-there mother, Taylor struggled as a child and young adult. Add to these issues sexual abuse, drug addiction, a horrific car wreck, multiple suicide attempts, and crippling anxiety and so much more it’s hard to imagine how he ever made it.
Taylor now has a bachelor’s degree, recipient of the president’s lifetime achievement award, certifications in adverse childhood experiences (ACE‘s), The Teacher and Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) Specialization, mental health first aid, and has written multiple books. He is working to obtain his master’s degree to become a mental health therapist.
