Mackenzie has worked for WTFRC since May, 2012. While she grew up in an agriculture town, she didn’t know as much about the indusrty as she thought. Mackenzie says that she has gained more knowledge regarding how farming functions, along with numberous small details that the aveage person wouldn't be aware of. Working in this job has opened her eyes to a whole different world of farming and produce. One her favorite aspects about working at the Commission is the ability to meet a variety of people; learning to work and communicate with people from different cultural backgrounds. It definitely helps broaden the perspective on how other people communicate and understand things.
