McKenzie Kaufeld Counts, CMP – Manager of Making It Happen

mckenzie kaufeld counts

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.

Mac’s two loves of her life are her husband Dan, who shares her passion for craft brews, and their rescue pup, Caddy.

Her loves include:

  • Spending 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!
