Meet Mackenzie

I’m a 21-year-old athlete who considers myself “blessed with a curse,” as I struggle with an auto-immune disease and a former addiction to excessive exercising. My struggles, however, have not held me back from excelling in the sport of bodybuilding or Medical School.

Despite my body numbness, tingling, digestive issues, and other debilitating health concerns, I can use my personal struggles each day to shine her light onto the lives of others.

Place to visit or travel

My family has a cabin about 1.5 hours from where I live, going out there and spending time with my family is my favorite place to be! It’s a ton of fun to surf, boat, read in the sun, or just spend time fishing with my dad.

Extra Motivation

I think everyone gets pumped up from seeing videos or photos of their favorite athletes, but my greatest motivation comes from my previous health issues. I have an auto-immune disease which I was lucky to catch early on in my life. Because of it I always start my days and my workouts thanking the Universe for blessing me with a healthy enough body to do what I’m able to do and love each day.

Although my health still affects my day to day life, I always am grateful that I am healthy enough to be active and live a beautiful life. When I am having a rough day or feeling a bit down I reflect on no matter how horrible my situation is, it could ALWAYS be much worse!


I could not go a day without Perfect Sport’s Diesel Protein! Being a Celiac, I am VERY limited to what I can put into my body. This protein is FANTASTIC for a quick recovery AND is accepted by my picky body. It proves just how clean this protein is.
