Growing up in a small, rural town in northeast Texas, McKenzie had big dreams of creating a better life for herself someday. McKenzie worked four jobs to put herself through college at Texarkana College and Texas A&M University-Texarkana where she graduated with a B.S. in biology. She later went on to Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas where she completed physician assistant school. McKenzie enjoys developing trusting relationships with her patients.
