Hi, I'm Makenzie.
I grew up in Puyallup, WA, and graduated from the University of Washington in 2017 with a Bachelor of Science in Informatics. While at UW I played Division I softball for the Huskies and also met my now-husband, Clark.
I've spent the last 3+ years in technology consulting, traveling the U.S. helping clients improve their customer and employee experience. I've been fortunate to travel to some of the most amazing cities. Steadfast and Graceful emerged as a place to document my love for travel, photography, and design, fulfilling both a childhood dream of starting a blog and a void in my heart for art, story-telling, and beauty.
Steadfast and Graceful has become somewhat of a motto and reminder to relentlessly pursue my dreams and interests with a humble and gracious heart. Through documenting my journey and the stories of others, I hope to help other women pursue their God-given gifts with confidence and grace.
