Mackenzie joined the management staff at The Metropolitan Club in 2019 after graduating from one of the top ten hospitality schools at the University of South Carolina. She even took many classes on food and wine! She has been planning parties all of her life for fun, and now is planning parties as a career.
She is fascinated by all kinds of food, wine, and spirits. She expressly loves everything Italian. Sorrento, Italy, on the Amalfi coast, is where she interned during college. Her travels have taken her to over 12 additional countries and a bevy of islands. She is a pleasure to work with and a great resource.
