Mackenzie joined BVH in January 2022. Although she has joined the BVH Denver practice, Mackenzie has roots in small town Nebraska. She grew up in Atkinson and went on to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, earning her Bachelor of Science in Design: Architecture and Master of Architecture degrees.
Mackenzie has experience on all phases of documentation and construction, but she gets most excited about problem solving and critical thinking. She enjoys the collaboration with clients, consultants, and contractors that is necessary to determine smart and effective solutions.
Upon graduating from UNL, Mackenzie moved to Southern California to both start her career and to find adventure. Now that she’s relocated to Colorado, Mackenzie is excited to continue her favorite activities of hiking, rock climbing, and backcountry camping in a new place.
