McKenzie Kaufeld Counts, CMP – Manager of Making It Happen

mckenzie wildly different

Mac stumbled across Wildly Different over 10 years ago while earning her BS in Event Management from University of Central Florida’s Rosen College of Hospitality. She asked Lisa, who was presenting to her class, if she could shadow her to learn about her job and Lisa invited her to work on-call with them instead. Next thing you know, we were calling her so much, we decided to make her a full-time member of the team!

Since joining the team, Mac has held many roles and currently oversees Marketing. Though her detail driven brain is also a pro when it comes to event operations and logistics, so you’ll often find her on-site leading groups and teams at events and hosting our virtual games for remote teams.

Since marrying her husband Dan in 2015, Mac has lived in Florida, Colorado, Arizona, and currently resides in Los Cabo, Mexico. Although Mac and Dan have traveled all over the world, her favorite journey is parenthood and loves spending time with their son, Cruz. 

Mac loves that motto that home is where the heart is, and credits their rescue pup, Caddy for making each house feel like home. 

Mac’s loves include:

  • Spending quality time with family and friends, which often means hosting game nights and creating game shows for gatherings.
  • Traveling and experiencing culture from around the world.
  • Coke Icees, which she truly believes can cure all that ails you (except for brain freezes).
  • The challenge and excitement each one of our Wildly Different events brings, as no two events are ever the same!
