Having grown up in southern Colorado, MacKenzie enjoys spending time in the mountains and finds inspiration in her surroundings. A love for the Centennial State led her to the University of Denver, where she received a Bachelor of Science and Business Administration in Real Estate and the Built Environment in 2018. Following graduation, MacKenzie worked as a Project Engineer with GE Johnson Construction where she completed 334 condominium units in downtown Denver. This experience allowed her to explore her passion for design and ultimately motivated her to pursue a Master of Architecture at Arizona State University.
During her time in Tempe, MacKenzie became enraptured by the nearby landscapes, often escaping the heat to find refuge in the mountains of Northern Arizona. She focused her studies on sustainable and conscious design practices — exploring Arizona’s magnificent rock structures, the simplicity of the saguaros, and how the natural environment coexists with design. She gained perspective on the intricacy of the desert landscape, its practicality, and the importance of understanding the land’s influence. She honed these skills while working at DeBartolo Architects in Phoenix, AZ, before deciding she was ready for a different type of outdoor sanctuary, which she found with CLB Architects in the Jackson studio.
Outside the office, you’ll find MacKenzie enjoying a cup of coffee while she explores her local farmers market or hiking, skiing, floating, and exploring all that the local community has to offer.BACK TO TEAM
