Mackenzie was born and raised in the small town of Windsor, Missouri. She graduated from Windsor High School in 2009 and received her Associates Degree from State Fair Community College. She is working towards a Bachelor’s Degree through Central Methodist University.
Throughout college, Mackenzie has worked full time as a Paraprofessional at both Windsor and Warsaw school districts for a total of 6 years. Mackenzie felt her heart being pulled in a different direction and after much thought she decided to take a huge leap from education to join the Restoring Hope team as the first full time Self Directed Support Broker for the agency.
In Mackenzie’s free time she enjoys spending time with her boyfriend Lance and her close-knit family. Mackenzie dreams of running in a marathon and creating change in our state towards the stigma of individuals with a developmental disability.
