“I love that the event industry is equal parts creativity and organization. I’ve got a super creative brain, but also have to stay very organized, so working in this industry is the perfect happy medium!”
Mekenzie is the Marketing Coordinator/Graphic Designer/Marketing Maven for The Event Lounge. She specializes in all things marketing: social media, graphic design, website management and mobile app management. Mekenzie aims to ensure that we maintain great relationships with previous clients, as well as obtaining new clients through her marketing endeavors. Her graphic abilities are also instrumental in allowing us to create customized, branded and clever elements for our clients and their events.
Mekenzie attended both the University of Oklahoma and the University of Central Oklahoma, where she majored in Journalism and Fashion Marketing. She originally planned to move to New York after graduation, but after spending a summer interning at Tory Burch HQ, she decided she couldn’t be away from her home state for too long.
Before joining The Event Lounge, she worked for Kendra Scott in both Dallas and Oklahoma City. There she had the opportunity to work closely with the Events Assistant Manager, and fell completely in love with the industry. She attended several off-site events with Kendra Scott and learned how important the marketing side is to make each event successful.
Strengths: Graphic Design Layout, Hand Lettering, Photography, Website and Mobile App Design
Passions: Traveling, trying new things, being adventurous, spending time with my family and friends and searching for the perfect jalapeño margarita.
Most Memorable Event Moment: While working at Kendra Scott, we did an in-store event for a Make-A-Wish child. Seeing her face light up while she created her own custom jewelry on the Color Bar was such an incredible feeling. She had the time of her life doing something that I was able to do every day, so it was a great reminder to appreciate the things I normally take for granted.
