Makenzie Barron Murray

Makenzie - Bio picI first came to Buena Vista as a camper at Adventure Unlimited. This valley! The mountains and desert found a place in my heart, and I returned many summers to play and work as a raft guide. When my husband, Steve, and I settled here year-round in 2012, I took a residential, field instructor position at Link for two years. I left Link to pursue my masters and to expand my teaching experience, and have since taught English and Composition at Colorado Mountain College in both Leadville and Buena Vista. I am excited to return to the Link learning environment, and to again be a part of this thoughtful, fun-loving community.

I hold a BA in Linguistics from Reed College in Portland, Oregon, and an MFA in Creative Writing with a focus in fiction from Queens University of Charlotte in Charlotte, North Carolina.

In November of 2016, Steve and I welcomed our son, Robin. Needless to say, we like him.
