Mackenzie’s passion for agriculture stems from a young age while growing up in the rural agricultural town of Colusa, CA. Obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Communication from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo helped develop her passion for building connections with producers and consumers. Her background and experience in the livestock and grain industries have allowed her to develop design materials and techniques to advocate for the industries on both printed and digital platforms. Travel, photography, and design are just some contributors to her creative and outgoing personality. Mackenzie can be found taking photos of pigs and cattle as well as seeing new sights in both big cities and historic areas. Her natural drive for professionalism as well as conformity helps her to connect with farmers across the state to listen to their stories and help craft their message for the everyday consumer.
