Joanna MacKenzie – Disaster Action Team Lead
A Texan transplant with a knack for volunteering! Everything I do is with full passion, from eating raw cookie dough to helping people and animals affected by disaster. If I’m not working, on call with the Red Cross or laughing with friends, you can find me hiking with my 6-year-old rescued, 3 legged dog Jimbo and 10-year-old boxer Sunny. After reflecting on my experience volunteering with national animal rescue groups helping New Orleans residents with their pets after Hurricane Katrina, I learned about my local Red Cross disaster services and have been a fixture here ever since. Stay safe and check your smoke alarm batteries!
