Growing up, my family was very holistic and in harmony with our natural world. We brought nature in to our home as much as possible and strived to ebb and flow with the natural cycles of our Earth. When it came time to pick a career, it was natural to choose a profession that mirrored the way I live my life.

Chinese Medicine spoke to me because it uses Mother Earth to diagnose and treat any ailment or condition. We are a microcosm of the Earth so when we see something happening outside, we can relate it to something that happens in our bodies. For example: when we look outside in the winter, it is cold.  Cold constricts, solidifies, and congeals. If we think about dryness in our bodies and then think about a desert full of cracks, this can help us to relate. On a hot summer day, the heat quickens, moves, and expands. If you think about a swamp, dampness in our bodies causes sinking, heaviness, and stagnation.

I further fell in love with Chinese Medicine when I learned that it treats the root cause of the condition. So often, we are masking symptoms and driving them deeper into our bodies. This hinders our health and moves us further from homeostasis.  Treating the root cause of the disease will ensure that the condition is corrected and hopefully will not return. This is Chinese Medicine’s specialty; working toward moving our bodies into homeostasis.

To fulfill my passions, I attended UW-Washington County to receive my Associates Degree, before beginning my journey at the Midwest College of Oriental Medicine in Racine, Wisconsin. I was taught a wide array of topics, both relating to Eastern and Western Medicine. I graduated with my Masters Level Certificate in Acupuncture and have over 2,000 hours of training.

I believe that our bodies are innately self-healing. Your body knows what it needs to do to achieve health, occasionally though, there are barriers. As your Chinese Medicine practitioner, I will guide your body back into balance and remove obstacles, but it is your body that will be responsible for healing itself. I hope that it is empowering, as an individual, to know that your health is in your own hands, but you don’t have to do it alone.

I hope that when you come to see me, you experience a sense of tranquility, wellbeing, rejuvenation, and joy. I really take pride in the space that I have created and hope it is a healing and safe environment for you, too.


"I received acupuncture and cupping from Kenzie and it was nothing short of amazing. She listens to everything about a person, physically, emotionally, and mentally. One Sunday, she treated a horrible headache that went away instantly with acupuncture. I have since moved to Florida and can honesty say that not a day goes by that I don’t miss her presence, as well as, her passion."

"I truly cannot say enough good things about Soul Shine Healilng. Acupucnture has done wonders for me; I look forward to each appointment. It has helped me improve and balance my physical and mental health. Moreover, Mackenzie is such a compassionate practitioner.

"I suffer from chronic migraines, and my daily preventative medication helped some and my pain meds only worked 50% of the time. Even with my prescribed medication, I was getting 6-7 migraines a month and missing work more than ever. I was curious about Chinese Medicine but hadn’t found someone close to home or that I felt comfortable with. When I found out about Soul Shine Healing opening in West Bend, I knew I had to try. From the moment I walked in the door, I felt calm and welcomed. Mackenzie listens to everything you have to say and tries to help you in every possible way. I’ve been getting acupuncture and cupping for the last few months and it has helped me more that I could ever have dreamed. I went from 6-7/month to 1 minor headache, if that! I recommend these treatments to anyone and everyone I can. If you’re on the fence about getting treatments from Mackenzie, don’t wait, I promise it will be worth it!"
