Growing up in Portland, Ore., some of my earliest memories included biking over the city’s bridges and hiking in the Columbia River Gorge. This strong connection to the outdoors is what makes me want to preserve it, and I'm excited to be part of a team working to make the future more equitable for everyone.
After graduating from Oregon State University’s New Media Communications and Writing program, Mackenzie worked in both the public and private sector before moving to the South Pacific to partner with local communities on sustainable development and marine conservation projects. She is now a member of Alta’s Marketing team, serving as our Communications Specialist. When not in the office, she can be found biking around the Pacific Northwest, exploring the city’s numerous food carts, reading a library book, or traveling somewhere new.
