Lizzy MacKenzie


Lizzy MacKenzie is the office administrative assistant at Northwest Forensic Institute. Lizzy received her bachelors of arts degree in Developmental Psychology from Emmanuel College (Boston, MA), with a minor in Music Performance. Since moving to Portland, she has held many odd (and experience-lending) jobs; from nannying three boys to tending guests at Providence Park, working at a market research call center to being a virtual personal shopper at, taking contractor's orders at a gutter and roofing company to being an assistant to a children's book author, she's done it all! Working at Northwest Forensic Institute is by far, her favorite job. She believes that it is such a rewarding experience to be working with such a stellar team of professionals every day. She wears many hats during the day helping to keep the NWFI gears turning. If you are ever in the office you'll surely be greeted by Lizzy's smiling face, ready to help you with whatever you need. She'll most likely be humming a tune. Something by The Beatles? An aria by Mozart? It all depends on the day. 

When she is not at work, Lizzy is probably at choir rehearsal, biking around the city, attending a music show with friends, playing with her cat Nuit, doing backyard yoga, or learning YouTube choreography and pretending she's on Broadway.
