Previously, Mackenzie worked in the public affairs office at Fort Knox for US Army Cadet Command. In this role she managed national social media channels, created content, maintained digital engagement and coordinated with local media.
Mackenzie is a Lexington native who made her way back after four years down in sweet home Alabama. A graduate of Auburn University (War Eagle), Mackenzie studied public relations and marketing.
She currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Public Relations Society of
