She competed in Synchro for 4 years, and has also completed her Gold Skills, Gold Artistic, Silver Dance, and Silver FreeSkate. She eventually took the next step, by becoming a coach at the age of 18.

McKenna considers the club like a second home. She has a natural love for kids. She loves to connect with the skaters on and off the ice, help them achieve their goals and of course have fun!
McKenna’s goal is to push the skaters to be the best they can be.
