As a Flathead native I am in love with our special corner of the world. It is not only the beautiful landscape that surrounds us, but the culture of our community that makes me love where I live. With an arsenal of exquisite dining, year round social events, and the good natured spirit of our locals it is our small town charm that inspired my business name, Love Montana Living.
I grew up in Whitefish and had the most amazing childhood. My mom still lives in my childhood home to this day and has no plans on ever selling! Spending summers on Whitefish Lake and winters on Big Mountain, I was very active and fell in love with athletics at an early age. I played volleyball, basketball, golf and softball growing up. I even made the high school softball team as a middle schooler, in the Netherlands, when I attended their private school during 8th grade. I graduated from Whitefish High School in 2005 and immediately entered the workforce. I had quiet the potpourri of jobs from telephone customer service both in banking and travel, to waiting tables for many years at, what feels like a 2nd home for me, Grouse Mountain Lodge.
In 2009 after the economy crash, I began working at Teletech which was one of the only employers offering health insurance and a 40-hour work week at the time. What I thought would be a short term job and a place for me to land while I figured out the next step, turned out to be the most serendipitous and pivotal choices I’ve ever made. When I went to apply, the front desk clerk Michael checked me in and had me begin the process. Six weeks later after I graduated their training program I was assigned to Michael’s team and almost eight months later we began dating. I stayed at TeleTech for three years eventually being promoted to trainer and there realizing I was meant for bigger things. I enrolled in our community college FVCC and over the next three years obtained my certification in business administration.
Michael and I have a love for travel and fitness. We started competing in the Spartan Races in 2013 and were instantly hooked. We’ve been able to travel across the United States visiting, Seattle, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Chicago, and New York, in some cases just visiting to run a Spartan Race! In 2014, on a trip to Las Vegas Michael proposed to me in front of the Bellagio Hotel water fountain. Almost 2 years later we wed on August 25th, 2016 at Flathead Lake Lodge in Bigfork. Of course we took advantage of the excuse to travel and spent our two week honeymoon in Miami and Saint Marteen. The night we got back, I realized how successful our honeymoon was and nine months later on May 6, 2017 we welcomed our son Jaxson.
In 2018, I successfully closed 15 transactions and was in the top 20% of agents at Keller Williams Realty. In my business I pride myself on excellence in customer service and cutting edge marketing techniques. After I graduated college I remember telling my husband, “I wish I could be a permanent student forever.” Ironically, I have chosen the perfect business to be a forever student! I am always learning and seeking ways I can better represent my clients. The love for my business shows in the passion and commitments I make every day. My wish for all my clients is they love where they live and love Montana like I do.
Currently Kenzie and her husband Michael reside in Kalispell. Michael is a personal trainer and continues to coach his wife in the gym and for Spartan Races. With family close by, Kenzie’s in Whitefish and Michael’s in Bigfork, Jaxson has tons of extended family and they take great joy in sharing their lives with such a great family and a wonderful community to raise their son in.
