Fun Fact:

Mackenzie is a freelance writer/editor based in the Pacific Northwest, where she tries to spend more time in the mountains or the water than she does in front of her computer. Her previous mailing addresses have at various times included Afghanistan, Egypt, Colorado, Arizona, India, and Thailand, thanks to former jobs in humanitarian aid, advocacy work and journalism.

When not climbing, writing or getting lost somewhere in the woods, she can also be found biking around Seattle, painting, or making a mess in the kitchen. This fall, Mackenzie will be temporarily leaving the West Coast for an RN program in Toronto, and hopes to eventually balance a career in emergency and remote care nursing with a deep love of climbing and simple living. Her dream home-base is a converted, off-the-grid shipping container somewhere in the Southwest, with a massive garden and plenty of hammocks.
