Makenzie James is a newly graduated student from Southern Methodist University. She graduated with a B.A. in Public Relations and Strategic Communication in May of 2019 and is looking forward to bringing her experience to #TeamJWA this Fall!
Makenzie, a recent Arizona transplant, has found a new love for Dallas which she now calls home. When she isn’t working, Makenzie can be found trying new dessert places in Dallas, working out at Hiit by Brit or hanging out with her family and puppy in Southlake.
What interested her most about working at J. Waylon & Associates was the ability to work in Public Relations along with Advertising all under one roof. Makenzie’s degree may be in PR but her minor is in Advertising which she insists that she loves just the same. The ability to work in an agency setting along with being an individual is an integral part of where Makenzie decides to work.
“I’ve only been at JWA for a few days but working with the people here has already began to feel like home! I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for JWA and I.”
Other fun facts about Makenzie are she desperately wants a dog even though she’s allergic and has no time, is an avid eraser collector and although she’s an only child, you wouldn’t know it by how much she values being around people.
She is very excited to be working at J. Waylon & Associates this fall and looks forward to what the future will bring.
