Mckenna grew up in eastern Washington, in a small town known for its apples. In search of evergreens and the ocean, she moved to Bellingham to study at Western Washington University.
Her interest in non-gmo, local, and organic food stems from her passion for wellness. While studying bio-cultural diversity in Nepal, she became interested in understanding cultural differences in wellness practices, and local food sources, and how to preserve those differences to allow people to thrive in their unique environments.
She obtained her degree in Management Information Systems from Western Washington University and enjoys working with, and gaining insight from data. She is excited to contribute these skills to support the project’s mission to empower people to take better care of themselves, their environments, and their communities.
