Mackenzie was born and raised in Anchorage. She graduated from UAA in 2019 with her Bachelor’s of Science in Sociology with double minors in Psychology and Criminal Justice. Her passion for everything hair related led her to want to work at the salon. She started working at StudioFx in 2016 greeting and caring for all the clients entering the salon, while studying her way through college. She plans on using her degree in the future when the timing is right, but for now Mackenzie loves interacting with all the lovely clients and managing the front desk. Mackenzie loves traveling, reading, working on her small business (Tiny Turtle Creations), and spending time with friends and family.
