MacKenzie Ivory, HIS

MacKenzie graduated from Utah State University in 2018 with her BS in communication disorders and deaf education and has been working with the House of Hearing since October 2018 and is interning to become board-certified as a hearing instrument specialist.

She first developed an interest in hearing back in 2009 when her three-year-old brother was diagnosed with a profound hearing loss. Later on that year, her newborn sister was also diagnosed with the same hearing loss. Her family went through learning ASL and finally decided that the best way for her siblings to communicate with their grandparents, cousins, and everyone else was to get cochlear implants. Ten years later and those siblings can hear and talk – one is captain of his soccer team and the other is top of her group in gymnastics. She’s so grateful that they can hear and communicate and she wanted to be able to learn more about hearing loss so that she can help those around her to hear and communicate better.

She served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Urdaneta, Philippines, and is fluent in Tagalog. She hopes to go back in the future to help serve those who have a hearing loss. Outside of work, she loves going to the movies, going up the canyon to camp, hike, or build a campfire with friends. She enjoys going to plays and concerts, and she likes finding new crafts to sew or crochet.
