I earned my Master's degree in Counseling from Sonoma State and have worked in Higher Education since 2010. 

In 2017 I joined the Cognitive Science program as a Student Services Advisor. I am grateful for my opportunity to work with students one-on-one and enjoy watching students progress through their college careers.  In my current position I have refined my ability to guide students through a major with unpredictable and highly-impacted course offerings. My position here has allowed me to think on my feet and implement changes in a rapidly expanding major.

 I am passionate about providing individualized, strengths‐based, and culturally competent services to students. I’m interested in food, art, music, and international travel, and speaking to my students about what makes them tick. I enjoy getting to know my students and following them through their academic and personal development.

MacKenzie Moore began her career in higher education upon admission to the PhD program in History here at UC Berkeley. She worked as a history instructor and lecturer for 9 years, through which she discovered her passion for working directly with students as an advisor. She first worked as student advisor with the American Studies program at UC Berkeley before transitioning to the Cognitive Science program. She loves talking with students about all aspects of their academic lives. She is a skilled educator with tremendous problem solving skills just waiting to help students when they need it!
