McKenzie is from Charlotte, North Carolina, and has spent the majority of her life in the southeastern United States. While in North Carolina, she attended The University of North Carolina at Charlotte, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in Health Communication Studies with a minor in Public Health. It was also during this time that she became a member of Alpha Delta Pi sorority. The positive impact that McKenzie’s undergraduate experiences made on her life, along with her passion for fostering growth in others, inspired her to pursue a career working with college students. She earned her master’s degree in College Student Personnel from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and served as a Graduate Assistant in the Office of Sorority and Fraternity Life. McKenzie enjoys serving her profession through facilitating, as well as holding various volunteer roles within the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors (AFA) and the Association of Fraternal Leadership & Values (AFLV). In her free time, McKenzie likes to shop for home décor and clothes, read books, try new restaurants with friends, and go on cruises when she can. She is also an aspiring dog owner and hopes to welcome a (big) furry friend into her home soon.
