Mackenzie has been writing since she was eight-years-old. As a third grader, Mackenzie won her city-wide Public Speaking Competition delivering a speech that she composed. Since then, her love for persuasive and personal writing has blossomed into an obsession with political speechwriting, educational blogging, and writing inspiring messages to members of the club volleyball team that she coaches.


Mackenzie's professional writing has not only been featured in the Pearson Education Student Blog, but has lead her to be named a Top National Contributor to the website. She wrote over 30 posts for the company as a Student Ambassador. During that time, Mackenzie also was utilized by Indiana University's Office of Communications for YouTube interviews regarding diversity, travel, and music.


Upon completion of her Master's Degree in May 2020, Mackenzie aspires to make a full-time career out of writing in either a marketing or public relations capacity.
