Mackenzie believes that transit access, robust active transportation infrastructure, and human-centered public space design all play a significant role in achieving health-promoting cities. She is especially interested in advancing equitable access to transit and other urban amenities, such as parks, green spaces, and cultural centers.

Mackenzie (she/her) is a designer who is interested in creating urban environments that promote physical and mental well-being. Prior to joining Foursquare ITP, she worked as an architectural designer in Washington, DC, focusing on the construction of urban infill projects. Meanwhile, she pursued academic research on evidence-based urban design and restorative streetscape design. These experiences have given her a fondness for using both written and graphic communications, such as renderings, maps, diagrams, and infographics, to develop a narrative around a given design or planning objective. She hopes to use these tools to help Foursquare ITP’s clients and the communities they serve, to visualize and realize their ideal built environment.
