Mackenzie was born and raised in the big city of Peterborough. After graduating from Queens University Civil Engineering in 2016, she explored the even bigger city of Toronto while working for a consulting firm there. She is excited to be back in Peterborough and gain more municipal experience in the area she grew up in, while working towards her P.Eng. designation.

Out of the office, she enjoys playing sports of all kinds, her favourites are hockey and soccer as well as spending time outdoors at the cottage!
