MacKenzie is a rising senior at University of North Carolina Wilmington pursuing a degree in biology. Her passion for animals and the environment started young as her favorite shows to watch as a kid were animal planet documentaries. She would love to use her degree to work in wildlife conservation doing hands-on work either in field research, a zoo, or something similar. In her free time, she enjoys watching and being involved in theatre, thrifting, baking, embroidery, and watching Marvel movies. MacKenzie attended WYSE in 2019 and was a JFA in 2022. She is so excited to be coming back as a JFA again, and she can’t wait to help make WYSE 2023 an amazing experience for the delegates this year.
