Mackenzie is currently at her last semester of undergraduate. She is a business administration major and nonprofit management minor at Pepperdine University. She will be starting graduate school in the spring and will earning her MBA with a certification in Socially, Environmentally, and Ethically Responsible (SEER) Business Strategy. She joined the board in 2019 as part of an inaugural Fellowship Program supported by the university in an effort to provide actual non-profit Board experience. She had an opportunity to volunteer at a bereavement camp for children and the experience of seeing how camp could impact people’s lives so greatly, made her want to pursue nonprofit work. In her spare time, she likes hanging out with friends, watching movies, baking and playing with animals.
