A U of O graduate with a degree in Advertising, Mackenzie was introduced to the world of project management in agency environments early in her career. She has continued to develop her knowledge and skills to assist clients with all their project management needs. She is a great communicator and always puts her clients’ needs first. On the weekends, you can find me at Duck Football games, spending time in nature and exploring all that Portland has to offer.

This quote reminds me to always take the time to slow down, never stop questioning my beliefs and be willing to look at the big picture.

collaboratively and watching a plan become reality is fulfilling. I strive to bring a positive influence to my teams and enjoy learning from cross-functional team members.

As a project manager, I stay curious about client’s unique goals and industry. I also aim to be adaptable to account for changing landscapes and priorities.
My approach to customer service is to build long-lasting relationships by taking the time to listen and connect with the client beyond the project at hand.

I’ve slowly started collecting houseplants and have recently installed UV lights on my plant station to keep my succulents alive through the PNW winters.
My favorite museum is the Musée de l’Orangerie in Paris. Their Water Lilies exhibit is amazing plus it’s located in a beautiful garden.

My most used app would probably be Spotify, if I’m not listening to music, I’m listening
to a new Podcast. Spotify has simplified the app over the years focusing more on
personalized playlists and music discovery. These changes make navigating the app
faster and more enjoyable, all reasons I can’t live without it!
