McKenzie Nicholson (Kenzie)

Interior Design Intern

Kenzie is a student at Century College, finishing up her last semester for a degree in Interior Design. One of her favorite parts of being an Interior Designer is the beautiful transformation and the happiness it brings the homeowner!

When not working or in school, she can be found exploring the outdoors and going on spontaneous adventures. One of her favorite places she's traveled to is the Sequoia National Park.

"I love sunrises and sunsets. I am not a morning person so I definitely see more sunsets than I do sunrises.

I am a plant lover, yet still in the progress of becoming a qualified plant keeper.

Last but not least, I am a big packer fan!"
