Dr. McKenzie received her undergraduate degree from the University of Kentucky and then went on to receive her Optometry Degree from Indiana University. Dr. McKenzie completed an Ocular Disease Externship at Bascom Palmer Eye Institute as well as an Ocular Disease and Low Vision Residency at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Lexington, Kentucky.

Dr. McKenzie’s interest in eye care started at a young age as she learned about the field from her father, Dr. Mike Halpin.
