What clients and colleagues say about my work.
"MacKenzie joined the Raghunter Editorial Team for a 'too-short-for-us' but very effective time. As head editor, she led our team of full-time and contributing writers in creating content for our digital magazine. The content strategy objectives were to create Raghunter-owned content plus branded editorial content for brands that we work with (including both fashion and non-fashion). Her expertise in editorial strategy helped Raghunter create a footprint in unique, relevant content in Beirut and extending regionally whenever that was applicable. We highly recommend MacKenzie and truly believe she is a strong asset to any editorial team, especially those focused in digital content strategy."
– Serene Abbas, Raghunter co-founder
"As Editor-in-Chief at A, MacKenzie approached everything she did with style and attention to detail. She's a strong and polished writer, adept at making complex topics accessible and simple topics fascinating. Her organization skills never failed to impress; she literally wrote A's instruction manual and style guide and streamlined our editorial processes. As a manager, she was approachable and fun to work with – able to bring together a team from across backgrounds and cultures."
– Christina Tkacik, multimedia journalist at The Baltimore Sun and former A magazine associate editor
"Whether looping her in at the pitch stage, or presenting a well-formed brief, MacKenzie was up to the task—and delivered above-and-beyond expectations. She was a pleasure to work with: always willing to adapt to suit our needs, whether it be a shift in the angle of the piece, or our deadlines. She always brought such enthusiasm to her projects that often times she helped further shape the ideas of our content for the better. In addition her incredible sense of creativity, she is also resourceful and extremely diligent, and often added enormous value to our pieces by pulling in additional research or interviews. In terms of the process, I always felt confident that the final piece would be aligned with our vision as she was not afraid to reach out for clarification/approval on direction she was going. I highly recommend MacKenzie for anyone's writing needs."
