Originally from the Sacramento Area, McKenna graduated from the University of California, San Diego with a Bachelors of Science in Public Health and a minor in Environmental Studies. While in San Diego, her work largely focused on sustainability, environmental justice and community health research and advocacy in positions ranging from sustainability analyst, community health advocate, health policy intern and research assistant. With a plan to obtain her Masters of Public Health after completing her service year, she is excited to pursue a career in environmental and climate justice on a local and global scale.
