My name is MacKenzie Cross and I am beyond excited to be your new School Counselor here at Broken Arrow Elementary!
I grew up in Omaha, NE, but migrated to Missouri to attend Northwest Missouri State University for college. GO BEARCATS! There I received my B.A. in Psychology, with a minor in Child and Family Studies, as well as my M.S. Ed. in School Counseling.
Shortly after graduation, my husband and I (photo on the left) moved to the Kansas City area, where I spent the past 3 years counseling in KC area schools.
Recently, my husband accepted a job at LMH and we made the move here to beautiful Lawrence, KS!
Despite COVID temporarily taking away our ability to meet in a brick and mortar setting, I am more than thrilled to take on my 4th year with the Broken Arrow staff, students, and families!
Outside of school I love spending time with my golden retriever, Rooney, reading mysteries and thrillers, listening to true crime podcasts, traveling with my husband, and getting together with family and friends!
