Mackenzie grew up in Colorado, which fostered a deep love for the outdoors: mountains, plains and everything in between. With a degree in writing, she has worked in various fields including education, marketing and content development but her heart has always led her back to travel. An incurable nomad, Mackenzie enjoys roaming the globe, from snorkeling the Yucatan Peninsula to exploring ancient ruins in central Thailand, to backpacking across Europe and road tripping through U.S. National Parks. She is passionate about developing community through story and travel. Next stop: Peru!
