Nickname: "Micki" is my nickname. My full name is Mackenzie.
Hobbies: Reading, hiking, cooking, baking, photography
Trivia: I like to make 4-course dinners once a week when I have time at home with my husband.
How’d you get started with the sport? I paddled for the first time in Grand Junction through the Great Blue Heron Canoe and Kayak Team run by Dennis Adams in late 2006. Soon after, I began to race in the downriver discipline, competing as a K1. With a left shoulder injury in fall of 2007, I began to paddle more canoe to allow my shoulder to rest and heal. Since then, I have never gone back to kayaking. In 2008, with almost no slalom experience except at a few local Colorado races, I participated in the 2008 US Slalom Olympic Team Trials, where the C1W class was introduced for the first time. After making the US team in 2008, I fell in love with both slalom and canoeing and have never turned back.
