Former educator, realist, and wine enthusiast, Mackenzie comes from a diverse background of behavioral intervention, teaching, and business development strategies. As part of a project within the Klein Independent School District to launch a new behavioral program on several campuses, she found her niche in wanting to help others grow their strengths within their career.
Drawing from experience in several industries, Mackenzie brings thoughtful, visionary, and practical coaching within developing organizations. When the stakes are high for a new or veteran executive, a troubled team needs intervention, or transition needs to take place, she can provide planning for the future while simultaneously improving day-to-day function. Her sensitive insight into tough issues defuses tensions and catalyzes collaboration.
Born in Houston, Texas, and raised in The Woodlands, Mackenzie found herself highly competitive in and out of the classroom, securing the State Champion title in swimming and serving as a National Honor Society officer - cultivating a growth mindset along the way.
From there, she went on to become a part of the University of North Texas’ Women’s Division 1 Swimming and Diving Team, before having career-ending surgery halfway through her four-year term.
Though Mackenzie went on to graduate with honors from the College of Arts and Sciences with a Bachelors in Psychology, and from the College of Education with a Bachelors in Kinesiology and a minor in Sociology.
In the spring of 2020, she finished her Master’s Degree in Applied Psychology from the University of Southern California, with an emphasis in Organizational Development and Consumer Psychology.
Allowing others to see their growth potential and bringing about the “best self” of each individual, are concepts Mackenzie feels strongly about. She truly believes in giving leaders tools and strategies that build their business, as well as providing hands-on coaching through the processes of change.
Mackenzie has become a world traveler for networking in the field of Organizational Health, with Dubai as her most recent stop. Closer to home, she currently lives near her mother and sister and enjoys the time they get to spend together painting, cycling, and trying new restaurants throughout The Woodlands.
