McKenzie Goyert is an interior designer who was first hired as a part of the co-op program, where college students can get real-world experience in the field of their choosing before entering the workforce. She was so impressive in her year as a co-op that she was hired full-time in the summer of 2020.
In her current role, McKenzie is responsible for designing the interior of K-12 educational buildings. In addition, she meets with the team to discuss potential design solutions with nothing more than a pen and trace paper, her favorite method of collaboration. She continues to develop her BIM skills and communicates with clients to develop design solutions that both satisfy and challenge the program for the betterment of the user and its environment.
“It excites me to know that the tangible differences my team and I make in the learning environment cultivates intellectual and interactive growth for students of all ages,” said McKenzie. “I am proud to create solutions that provide better opportunities for learning, a passion to be carried throughout your entire life.”
McKenzie is a bright and talented young professional with a very promising future ahead. By the time her career comes to a close, she hopes to leave a legacy that will last for generations.
“The aspirations I have for my career are boundless,” she noted. “I hope to mentor our community’s youth and those considering the design profession. I hope to grow my design capabilities, whilst growing the project and client list at SHP. I hope to produce innovative design solutions, achieve NCIDQ certification, and master client synergy. Mostly, I aspire to learn daily and continue the creation and advancement of environments for learning.”
When McKenzie isn’t designing, she enjoys scoring goals on the soccer field, hiking to new elevations, and traveling alongside her parents in their family motorhome. Check out one of her recent adventures in the photo to the right.
