Kenzie was born and raised in the Lower Keys. She attended Key West High School, graduating in 2013, and went on to attend Florida State University, where she majored in Anthropology. While in Tallahassee, Kenzie discovered her love for helping and serving animals, working in pet retail and volunteering with Black Cats and Old Dogs Animal Rescue, for which she currently serves on the board of directors. After returning to the Keys, she began her journey in veterinary medicine as a technician, receptionist, and eventually an assistant manager of a local animal hospital. Her experience in these roles helped her to develop key skills in many aspects of animal care and client education.
