MEET THE TEAM
Throughout her career, Mackenzie has gained a reputation for her unique approach to creating spaces that reflect her clients’ distinctive styles & interests. With a diverse portfolio of both residential and large-scale commercial projects, she has honed her skills in space planning and project management, placing emphasis on universal design practices and sustainability.
Prior to graduating with honors from Harrington College of Interior Design in downtown Chicago, Mackenzie earned her BS in Psychology from Michigan State University, where she focused on child and family psychology. The marriage of these educational backgrounds gives her the uniquely adept ability to communicate with clients and interpret their specific needs, and to understand the distinct ways individuals use their various spaces.
Mackenzie has built her business with her core values of community building, positivity and integrity in mind. She teaches and speaks nationally about business practices and interior design and is part of an ever-growing community of business owners who are expanding beyond the traditional business model.
Mackenzie constantly searches for new inspiration through travel, art, music, and nature. She loves highly functional spaces that have clean lines and natural light pouring in. She is a firm believer that the best design solutions are also the simplest and that kindness always comes back to you.
Senior Interior Designer, Project Manager
Specializing in AutoCAD and SketchUp, Aleah brings a unique, tech-savvy form of concept development to the team, along with a creativity and originality that is all her own. Born and raised in El Paso, Texas, Aleah relocated to Phoenix to attend Arizona State University, where she earned a bachelor's degree in Interior Design. She joined the MCI team as an intern and has been bringing fun, funky elements to the table ever since. Throughout the years, Aleah has worked her way to the top of the ranks as Interior Designer and Project Manager, serving as the primary contact for clients and contractors and overseeing project details from start to finish. Outside the office, if she’s not stuck with her nose in a book, you can find her curating her collection of indoor plants or hanging out downtown.
Jenna joined the MCI team just a month after transplanting to Phoenix from Indianapolis. A native of the Midwest, she received her bachelor’s degree in Interior Design from the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology at Indiana University. Jenna's favorite part of design is balancing color and spending time finding great solutions to spatial arrangements. She loves the minimal cottage look and hopes to one day design her own adorable lakeside dwelling. In her free time, Jenna enjoys reading, writing silly haikus, and hiking with her boyfriend and her two dogs.
Resident wordsmith Jessie got her start in marketing in the Sunshine State, where she earned a BA in Creative Writing from the University of Central Florida and spent time hanging out with astronauts. Prior to moving to downtown Phoenix in 2015, Jessie spent three years in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley before packing her things and heading across the country to spend a month in the High Sierra backpacking the John Muir Trail. On weekends, she’s either hiking with friends, playing music for her dog Partner, or speaking in an old-timey voice for no particular reason.
Business Development Manager
Always seeking to grow both personally and professionally, Monica aims to add her zest for organization and client connection to the MCI team! Originally fueled by a desire to understand people on a deeper level, she received her Masters of Social Work and Child Development back in her hometown of Chicago. Life shifted her direction into the world of design, and she spent three years as a Project Coordinator at a kitchen and bath showroom. Deciding it was time for a change from the cold, cloudy midwest, Monica sought more sunshine and moved to Phoenix. Here, she seeks to engage with the community and share how MCI can transform their spaces into interiors that are a beautiful showcase of personality. Monica hopes the desert landscape will serve as inspiration for her creative hobbies of photography, painting, and gardening.
And Vern, the wonder dog.
Regional Head of Security
Vern has been our head of regional security for over a decade. His encouragement and positive morale are essential to our daily office operations. He puts in long hours snoozing on his dog bed and making sure all team members get a quality dog petting session in each day. Beyond that, he even cleans our empty yogurt cups, greets our visitors, and offers his input on many complex design decisions. He invites you to come by our office and say hello!
