In February, 2011 Courtney was crowned Miss Palm Beach County 2011 and launched her business, Crowned Public Relations, Inc.
Through her work with pageants, McKenzie learned how to compete, how to relate to people and how to eloquently express her point of view. All of those skills and more came together when she made the decision to start her own PR business. Like many people, McKenzie found herself pursuing a career that she did not study in college. A Political Science Major from Florida International University, she always planned on being a lawyer. However, spending her extracurricular time as the debate team President and as a marketing coordinator, public relations turned out to be a natural fit for McKenzie.
Today, Crowned Public Relations is continuing to expand, with new business coming in every week. While the business primarily focuses on social media marketing, McKenzie had plans to branch out into event planning.
