Mackenzie Kelly

Community Engagement Coordinator


Spending her childhood on softball fields, golf courses, and running through the woods at camp, Mackenzie quickly found her love for the outdoors.  During her college years, as a Luckyday Scholar at University of Southern MS, Mackenzie logged hundreds of hours volunteering for various nonprofit agencies.  As a member of the USM golf team she spent most of her time outside in the elements.  Mackenzie spent the summers during graduate school working at a summer camp in east TN where she fell in love with hiking, backpacking, kayaking and rock climbing.  Today, she is passionate about helping others discover the positive benefits of the outdoors.  

Mackenzie has joined the LMC team as staff after completing a year-long internship with us during her Master's Program.  Mackenzie graduated from University of Tennessee at Chattanooga in Spring of 2019 with a Master's in Public Administration concentrating in Non-profit Management after receiving a Bachelor's in Political Science from the University of Southern Mississippi in 2016.  

In her free time, Mackenzie enjoys spending time outdoors, listening to good music, and spending time with friends and family.
