As a benefit auctioneer, I have helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for organizations that focus on everything from education to homelessness. To name a few, I’ve had the honor of working with Dress For Success – Northwest Arkansas as the auctioneer for their annual Little Black Dress Gala and for Habitat For Humanity – Ventura as the auctioneer for their annual fundraising gala where we broke their fundraising record for the event, raising over $100,000 in a single night.
As auctioneer, I am committed to learning your mission, speaking your language, and becoming part of your development team. By utilizing storytelling in a way that connects donors to your mission , together we can create an exciting fundraising atmosphere that transforms guests into dedicated donors and help your organization realize its fundraising potential and maximize your impact. Your auction will be enjoyable, mission-centric, and most importantly, profitable. I would love the chance to partner with your organization to give people opportunities to make meaningful, impactful change in their communities. I look forward to working with you!
“It was such an honor to have MacKenzie
there...and wow, she did a great job! So
many people complimented her skills at
the end of the night. She was an
absolute rock star at our event!”

I’ve always had a love for hosting and emceeing, but being Miss California really launched the development of this skillset by providing me opportunities to host dozens of events during my year. From local pageants to gala fundraisers to award shows, I worked with many organizations to bring life, humor, and organization to their event. An event host sets the tone of the evening for the audience and I love bringing as much joy and entertainment to the audience as possible during the run of the show. A host is so much more than a script-reader; a host is part of the show.
Most recently, I was honored to co-host the television broadcast of the 2019 Miss California Competition with news anchors Joey Horta and Megan Rupe. Check out the video above for a firsthand look at me on the job.
I am available for:
Having competed in pageantry for almost 10 years in as many different pageant systems, I know the industry inside and out and ended my career competing on the most well-known stage in pageantry: Miss America. I’ve won, placed in the Top 5, Top 10, Top 15, Top 30, and not placed at all. I’ve done the work through trial and error and failure to know what works so that you don’t have to. I also know how to play the mental game of pageantry and can help you put yourself into the right mindset to perform at your best. I offer interview training, onstage question training, walking practice, talent review, paperwork review, and wardrobe styling. Sessions can be conducted in person face-to-face or via video chat.
I’ve coached winners in Miss America, International Junior Miss, and International Pageants, with dozens of Top 5 and Top 10 placements. My girls have a consistent track record of improving with each competition after working with me.
I have years of experience with:
-International Junior Miss
-Miss High School America
-National American Miss
-USA National Miss
-Miss Teen America
-Miss Teenage California
