Taylor White has more than 25 years of experience in all facets of marketing. He has extensive experience working on both the client and agency side. He started his career working within advertising and marketing agencies before switching to the client side where he managed advertising, digital and public relations agencies. He understands the importance of setting objectives, creating a strategic marketing plan and sticking to a budget. But consider yourself warned — he’ll talk all day about these things if you let him.
Although Taylor is a talker (he can’t help it, he’s genuinely fired up about all things marketing), he’s also a listener. He listens to clients and takes the time to understand their business, their target audiences and their overall objectives. Once he understands where you want to go, he works with his team to develop a strategy to get you there.
Prior to forming adWhite, Taylor served as the Vice President of Marketing for Source One Spares — an aftermarket supplier of spare parts for commercial aircraft. Before Source One, he held various account management and media positions for leading marketing firms in the Dallas area such as Aegis Communications, Brierley & Partners and Temerlin McClain Advertising, working with clients such as AT&T, Blockbuster, GTE, Long John Silver’s and United Airlines.
Taylor is active in the community serving on numerous advisory committees and boards and remains involved in several other local companies that he has founded on his own or with others.
Taylor holds a BS in Journalism/Advertising & Public Relations from Texas Christian University. He also holds a Masters of Business Administration from Baylor University.
A graduate of Sam Houston State University, Katie began her career at Capital One Bank and joined adWhite in 2010.

Katie’s attention to detail, organizational and communication skills, previous experience and positive energy make her the perfect addition to the adWhite family.
In her spare time, you can find Katie hanging out on the lake with her husband and two daughters. She loves to travel, stalk interior designers on Instagram, and anything and everything about Mexican food.
Linda brings more than three decades of marketing expertise to the adWhite family. Founder of the recently acquired LJF Marketing, Linda expands adWhite’s specialties to include branding and identity, public relations and media planning.
A Woodlands resident since 1986, Linda is very active in the community and currently sits on the Board of Directors for the Texas Autism Academy and Rotary House The Woodlands. She and her husband are also 2010 The Woodlands Hometown Heroes.
While all things marketing make her smile, her real joys are her family and traveling. You can bet that her eyes light up when she gets to visit her two beautiful granddaughters!
Linda was a Rotary exchange student in the Netherlands, and she has since traveled extensively throughout Europe, and most recently to Bali and Japan. The next trip — Morocco! Her frequent trips to her happy place in Colorado also make her a “happy camper”!

Amy graduated from Baylor with a degree in Elementary Education and taught for 13 years at both public and private schools. Following teaching at The Woodlands UMC, she applied her organizational and communication skills as Executive Assistant for the Senior Pastor. After serving in that role for the next 10 years, we’re delighted she chose to share her talents with the adWhite team. Her attention to detail and positive energy keep our team on point.
While agency life is all new to her, she says, “I am always up for a challenge. As a teacher, I would start with a child where they were, and then take them as far as they could go. I guess that's what I'm doing here — it is a completely different job than what I know, but I can't wait to help the team go the extra mile to make the client as big a success as possible.”
Amy recently celebrated 25 years of marriage and is a mom to 4. She is a people person and is our resident expert in local restaurants, especially ones with a patio and a view.
