Jenny Mackenzie, Ph.D. is an award winning documentary filmmaker whose mission is to produce films that create and promote social change. Her most recent film, KICK LIKE A GIRL, aired on HBO, played at over 50 international film festivals, and is currently being used by the US State Department to discuss gender equity globally. As clinician, researcher, former non-profit administrator, and mother of three, Dr Mackenzie also uses her professional experience, humor, and real life passion to address the power of social impact film making as well known motivational speaker.

Her newest film, SUGAR BABIES (in post- production) is about the public health epidemic of diabetes in America’s children. Jenny understands diabetes personally because three generations in her family have been affected by type 1 (her aunt, brother, and 14-year-old daughter all have type 1). As Jenny began to research the film in 2009, she realized that the story of both types of diabetes that are ravaging our youngest generation needed to be told. She has a BA from Brown University, an MSW from Simmons College, and a Ph.D. from the University of Utah.
