  • Grew up on Green Mountain, Devinny Elementary, Dunstan Middle School, then Lakewood HS IB Program
  • Played soccer for Colorado Rush and Gold Crown Basketball teams
  • Loved to ski, the outdoors, camping, ATV’ing in Moab with friends and family, going to church (actually was an alter server at Christ on the Mountain – she volunteered at Mt St Vincent orphanage and at GC with special needs kids)_
  • Loved her brother who is two years younger – Gavin – now a Junior at CU Boulder

Mackenzie chose basketball over soccer as she wanted to play in college and thought basketball was more fun. She was a 4- yr starter at Lakewood HS and helped take the team to Great 8 twice. She was recruited by a lot of schools, including several D1 programs, and she choose to sign with Regis Univ (her Catholic faith was strong, and she did not want to be far from her brother).

Her passion for being the best she could be on the court and off the court of “life” was evident early on. She loved to practice her “art” whether heading and juggling her soccer ball to shooting hoops in the driveway. As she got older she admired Steph Curry – he was a smaller guard with brilliant ball handling skills – she watch his YouTube – and used her dribbling skills and knowledge of the game to improve others, the team and it overshadowed her 5’6” size.

She lived by these words:

“On the court – play hard, play smart and play with heart

Off the court – reach deep, reach out and show kindness”
