Makenzie grew up on a fourth generation family hay and cattle operation in East Texas. In her role with the Texas AgrAbility Project, she contributes her expertise by facilitating client relationships, case management, developing relationships with partners, conducting educational programs and events, assisting with farm and ranch assessments, and providing assistive technology recommendations.
