She’s profiled Billie Jean King, Megan Rapinoe, Simone Biles, Allyson Felix, Alex Morgan, Chloe Kim, Maya Moore, Mikaela Shiffrin, and many other ground-breaking women.
Her work has appeared in The Washington Post, Fortune, Glamour, Elle, SELF, NBC, Bustle, Marie Claire, Allure, Women’s Health and Forbes — among other publications. MacKenzie graduated cum laude from Northwestern’s Medill School of Journalism, where she studied magazine journalism, sociology and psychology.
