Sarah McGinnity

Sarah McGinnity

Owner

Sarah is mama to a very active 3-year-old, Henry, and new baby boy, Clark. After growing up in Manhattan, Kansas (go Cats!), she moved to Minnesota where she met her husband, Shea. Realizing how much she hated snow in May, she convinced him to move to Kansas City in 2010. Together they have lived in an apartment in Midtown, the tiniest house ever in Waldo and now rent a house on the Plaza. Sarah just finished her master’s in urban administration and works part-time as a website nerd. Her life rarely sees a dull day; in fact, in the last twelve months, her dog ran away and ended up on a morning TV show, her son locked her out of the house (with him inside alone) and she ran 18 miles – in a row. In-between the crazy, she likes to try new restaurants, go for walks on the Plaza and experience KC. She blogs at The Gatsby Diaries.

Mackenzie Oakley

Mackenzie Oakley

Sales Coordinator

“Hi! I’m Mackenzie, wife to Justin and mama to my two sweet little girls, Gracyn and Leighton. I grew up in Sioux Falls, SD and headed south for college in Lincoln, NE where I earned a bachelor’s degree in Marketing from UNL. I met my husband while I was visiting family in Kansas City in August 2007 and we’ve been together ever since. After graduating college in 2008, I landed my first job in Kansas City, Justin and I bought a house in Olathe, got married and started our little family. We’ve called the KC area home for 7 years now and are still exploring what the metro area has to offer. I currently work from home for a small marketing firm and spend my days wrangling a toddler and a baby and attempting to send a few emails here and there. I adore being part of the KCMB team and share more of our story on my personal blog, Baby By Oakley.”
