Please meet our new office assistant and librarian, Arden McKenzie. Arden is a Charleston native who graduated from Clemson with a degree in French and International Trade.

Arden is incredibly organized, which means she does a great job of keeping our office and design library running smoothly.

Arden comes to us from the marketing and PR world, so shifting to design is a brave new world for her. She loves details, so she particularly enjoys the little things in design that bring out a client’s personality.

When she isn’t working, Arden prefers being outdoors or on the water, at the beach, fishing with her husband on their boat, running downtown, and trying new restaurants with friends. Arden also likes to hang out at the farmer’s market, but her true love is discovering new desserts and pastries. Her current favorites are 1Broad’s chocolate chip banana bread and anything from Harbinger Café.

We appreciate Arden’s curiosity, work ethic, positive attitude and sense of adventure. In fact, stay tuned for a blog post about that time she climbed Mount Kilimanjaro!

Welcome to MDI, Arden. We’re so happy you’re here.
