I am Mackenzie Skousen and I am excited for my first year at Ascent Academy. I recently received my Bachelors degree from Brigham Young University in communication Disorders. I decided to become a Speech Language Technician because I love interacting with kids and teenagers and helping them improve their ability to communicate.
I grew up in Mesa, Arizona and have lived in Utah for 5 years. I served a mission for my church in Guatemala from 2013-2014. This last summer I spent 4 weeks in Paraguay with youth building classrooms at a local elementary school. I am fluent in Spanish and love practicing. I enjoy being outside riding my bike, boating, or playing volleyball and tennis. I also enjoy floral arranging and doing anything creative. I love traveling and learning about different people and cultures.
I am happy to be here and excited to work with you and your kids!
