Following graduation, Mackenzie dove into the world of events. From Vail, Colorado, to Washington, D.C., she spent nearly 15 years in the event industry managing, producing, and executing corporate, non-profit, and social events of all shapes and sizes.

In 2019, Mackenzie, her husband, and their three daughters returned back to Oregon. Mackenzie continued to work in events, in addition to sponsorship management and development for Portland's unique food festival, Feast. After working with Victory on their auction in October of 2023, she joined the team full time.

In her free time, Mackenzie finds herself at the beckon call of her daughters, from soccer games to dance recitals. Mackenzie and her family love to spend time together on the mountains in central Oregon, practicing patience and having fun!
