Mackenzie McGrath believes in the power of the indomitable spirit. She pursues adventure – wherever it may take her. She’s traveled, explored, and lived on every continent except Antarctica, and whether it is a meditation course in the Himalaya, engaging in peace work in Israel, or working as a diplomat in Central Asia, she pours herself into her passions. An avid outdoorswoman and climber, Mackenzie is approachable, friendly, and quick to crack a genuine smile. “My stepfather was a climber and first introduced me to climbing when I was 11 years old on a family trip to Montana but I didn’t really pick up climbing as a full blown passion though until many years later in New Zealand in 2007.” She’s worked in a climbing gym in New Zealand, scaled limestone walls while doing peace work in Israel, and climbed first routes in Kyrgyztan as one of the youngest US diplomats in Central Asia. A lover of trail running, her mom’s cooking, and using the outdoors to bring out leaders and passion in others, Mackenzie has passed her AMGA SPI exam and has a AIARE L1 certificate.
