About the event
Join us for networking, education, building relationships, and hearing from Mackenzie Childs.
From an emotionally abusive household to Emotional Intelligence Specialist. Mackenzie Childs, MS takes us through her journey of overcoming obstacles to master and teach others how their emotional state plays a major role in their personal and professional success (80% to be exact). What initially started as a way to offer "cheat codes" for communication with others, has become a business that has no intention of stopping any time soon!
Born in Houston, Texas, and raised in The Woodlands, Mackenzie found herself highly
competitive in and out of the classroom, securing the State Champion title in swimming and
serving as a National Honor Society officer - cultivating a growth mindset along the way. From
there, she went on to become a part of the University of North Texas’ Women’s Division 1
Swimming and Diving Team, before having career-ending surgery halfway through her four-year
Though Mackenzie went on to graduate with honors from the College of Arts and Sciences with
a Bachelors in Psychology, and from the College of Education with a Bachelors in Kinesiology
and a minor in Sociology. In the spring of 2020, she finished her Master’s Degree in Applied
Psychology from the University of Southern California, with an emphasis in Organizational
Development and Consumer Psychology.
Allowing others to see their growth potential and bringing about the “best self” of each
individual, are concepts Mackenzie feels strongly about. She truly believes in giving leaders
tools and strategies that build their business, as well as providing hands-on coaching through the
processes of change.
Mackenzie has become a world traveler for networking in the field of Organizational Health,
with Dubai as her most recent stop. Closer to home, she currently lives near her mother and sister
and enjoys the time they get to spend together painting, cycling, and trying new restaurants
throughout The Woodlands.
Former educator, realist, and wine enthusiast, Mackenzie comes from a diverse background of
behavioral intervention, teaching, and business development strategies. As part of a project
within the Klein Independent School District to launch a new behavioral program on several
campuses, she found her niche in wanting to help others grow their strengths within their career.
Drawing from experience in several industries, Mackenzie brings thoughtful, visionary, and
practical coaching within developing organizations. When the stakes are high for a new or
veteran executive, a troubled team needs intervention, or transition needs to take place, she can
provide planning for the future while simultaneously improving day-to-day function. Her
sensitive insight into tough issues defuses tensions and catalyzes collaboration.
