Meet Mekenzie House …
Our New Marketing Maven!
Hi y’all! I’m Mekenzie, and I’m so excited for you to get to know me a little bit better!
I am a Florida born, Texas raised, 20-Something with a love for creativity and adventure. I recently graduated with a degree in Fashion Marketing (boomer sooner), and am so happy to be back in the great state of Texas.
I am the oldest of three children and also the shortest member of my family. Seeing as I am 5’8, we’re a pretty tall bunch! My brother and sister are twins, and I absolutely love when we all get the chance to be together.

There’s a two year age difference between my siblings and me, so it wasn’t always rainbows and butterflies at our house (major props to my parents for putting up with the drama). Luckily, we all grew up (and matured a bit), and I can honestly say my parents and siblings are my best friends.
Growing up in Texas, I was fortunate enough to meet two incredible girls who became my best friends and changed my life forever. I met Meridith in first grade and we’ve been inseparable ever since. She even moved to Georgia in fifth grade, but that didn’t stop us from visiting each other every summer, and her eventually moving back to Texas for college. Meridith knows me better than anyone, and I am constantly laughing every time I’m around her.
I met Jordan at the very beginning of our freshman year of high school. We had gone to different middle schools, but both ended up on our high school drill team together. We’ve been attached at the hip ever since! Jordan is the honorary sixth member of my family and always has an automatic invite to any family vacation we take (we’ve been to Cozumel, St. Lucia, Miami, the Bahamas, Boston and Tampa).
This is my extremely handsome boyfriend, Mitch. We met in sixth grade (we went to church and school together), but didn’t start dating until high school. We saw other people in college, but the whole time I knew I wanted to be with him. He is my best friend, my biggest supporter, and he loves me despite the fact that I went to the University of Oklahoma and he went to the University of Texas (major rivalry).
As I mentioned earlier, I’m a huge adventure addict. I’ve grown up skiing, I’ve been deep water fishing and fly fishing in Alaska, I’m a PADI certified scuba diver, and I’ve even been sky diving!
Along with adventure, I have a major love for travelling. I find so much joy in exploring new places and going out of my comfort zone. My favorite places to travel to are Italy, New York and Colorado. I spent a month in Italy last summer with my mom, and the previous year I spent my summer interning in NYC for Tory Burch. Both were such eye opening and enriching experiences, which is why they hold a special place in my heart.
I can’t end this post without telling you what teams I root for. I was lucky enough to grow up with a dad who taught me to love all things sports, but most of all, football! Any Saturday in the Fall, you can find me cheering on the Oklahoma Sooners, and on Sundays, I’ll be at AT&T Stadium, rooting for the Dallas Cowboys. The Texas Rangers and Dallas Mavericks also hold a dear place in my heart. When you grow up in Texas, how can you NOT love these teams?
As Julie Andrews famously sang, “These are a few of my favorite things!”
Thank you so much for taking the time to read about me! I hope you all have a fabulous day!!
