Makenzie joined the WACH FOX Sports team in August 2018 as a multimedia journalist/producer. She is a graduate of the University of South Carolina , where she was on the Gamecocks Swimming and Diving team. Makenzie hails from Maryland where she competed with Olympians such as Michael Phelps and Katie Ledecky.
Makenzie has always been passionate about sports, especially college football, due to her father’s alumni allegiance to Penn State. Consequently, she dreamed of becoming a sports journalist at a young age. As a Gamecock freshman, she wrote features stories for Swimming World magazine. During her college years, she interned for the local CBS affiliate where she quickly worked her way up to become a weekend producer. She also contributed to ESPNU Campus Connection reporting on Gamecock Athletics.
As a South Carolina Alum, Makenzie is excited to stay in the Midlands where she will continue to highlight the many Gamecock stories to tell.
