April 2019 – MacKayla Mills


MacKayla joined VMI in Bowling Green in 2015 as an intern working specifically in our HR Department alongside Lydia and her team.

She stayed on with HR for a few months after her graduation in 2017 when an opportunity became available for MacKayla to join the team in Nashville in our Marketing Department.

Being from Nashville, MacKayla jumped at the chance to get back home to the city she loves. MacKayla currently serves as a Marketing Assistant and has excelled in this role. In addition to her duties in marketing, she also assists the office in planning most of all of our office wide events. MacKayla’s positive attitude is infectious and her desire to serve others embodies the ‘Nobody Works Harder’ spirit.

I heard it best said about MacKayla in passing the other day by one of our team members that everyone just loves being around her.

What a compliment!
