Douglas Taylor has worked with ‘at risk’ youth for more than 20 years in a variety of capacities ranging from mental health (partial hospitalization and case management) to supervisory positions in several residential facilities in Ohio and Pennsylvania. He looks at Open Doors Academy as a new and great opportunity to have a positive effect on kids in the school setting. Helping our scholars become successful learners is his top priority.
Doug hails from Akron, Ohio, and he has no issue in letting anyone know how great it was to grow up there and how proud he is of Lebron James, be it with the Heat or the Cavs. A diehard Cavs fan, he can be spotted at many games during the season both home and away.
Douglas enjoys watching Game of Thrones, visiting his daughter at the U.S Military Academy at West Point, watching girls high school basketball, where his youngest daughter is one of the best players in the area, and spending quiet time with his wife, Michele, having dinner, or watching a movie.
