Morning Meteorologist

Hometown: Green Bay, Wisconsin
School: University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

Mackenzie joined the TV6 team in July of 2017 as the Morning Meteorologist.

She graduated in May of 2017 from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee with a B.S. in Atmospheric Sciences along with a minor in Actuarial Sciences. Mackenzie completed her studies in 3 years and while in school, she interned under John Malan and Brian Gotter at WTMJ-TV in Milwaukee along with Luke Sampe at WFRV-TV in Green Bay. On top of that, she worked as an Operational Meteorologist for Innovative Weather. At Innovative Weather, Mackenzie had the opportunity to give live weather forecasts on WUWM radio and also forecast for large businesses such as the Milwaukee Brewers, WE Energies, etc.

As a Green Bay native, Mackenzie has experienced the four seasons the Midwest has to offer, but not necessarily the extreme snow the Upper Peninsula of Michigan receives - so she says she is excited to see what winter has in store for her. When Mackenzie isn't forecasting, she loves to visit her cabin in Wisconsin where she can jet-ski, wake-board, fish, snowmobile, and simply enjoy time with her family. And of course, Mackenzie is a huge Green Bay Packers fan! She loves going back home to attend games at the one and only Lambeau Field - Go Pack Go!
