MacKenzie (Mackie) Karlson, a Nixa, Missouri native, Mackie graduated in 2015 from Nixa High School and has a bachelors' a degree in Exercise and Movement Science/Biology from Drury University. Mackie fell in love with game of baseball at a young age as her dad raised her to love the Kansas City Royals. Throughout high school Mackie spent a majority of her time helping the Nixa High School Football Coach and Baseball Coach in strength and conditioning training in the off seasons. Being involved in athletics, whether in a uniform or later in the weight room, Mackie found her passion in the mechanics of how an athletic body achieves and becomes an elite athlete.
Her favorite part, she says, about working for The Show Me Collegiate League and US Baseball is that every player brings a story to the field, there is not a single player who has experienced the same pathway to wearing a college jersey and the perseverance of these players each year amazes her. She has a great love for the game and continues every day to be a part of a program that promotes talent and work ethic through the Show Me Collegiate League and everything US Baseball provides. Mackie is also a volunteer coordinator for 4 the Love of K9s Dog Rescue.
