MacKenzie Gleason

Program Coordinator - Administration, Communication, & Events

Program Coordinator MacKenzie is from Chicago, IL and received her Bachelor’s in Educational Studies and Religious Studies with a minor in French from Washington University in St. Louis in 2018. She recently served as a college adviser with the Washington University College Advising Corps, where she worked to provide college and career access to students at Maplewood Richmond Heights High School. Graduate Fellow MacKenzie completed her Master’s degree in Social Work at the Brown School in 2022 where she gained skills to address and disrupt educational inequality and inequity. In her free time, she enjoys watching movies, binge-watching TV series, traveling (when there’s not a pandemic, of course), listening to music, and hanging out with friends. MacKenzie is very excited to transition from her Graduate Fellow role with the College Prep Program to the role of Program Coordinator – Administration, Communication, and Events where she will continue to work with our wonderful scholars and team!
