Born and raised in the Chicago area, Dr. Mackey received her bachelor's degree from Northwestern University.

Additionally, she has been an active Hatha yoga instructor since 2004.

Prior to osteopathy, medical school and yogic life, Kirsten was an NCAA Division I field hockey player and a competitive snowboarder. It was her injuries and health issues during this time that introduced the importance of an integrative approach to healing. When she’s not learning, teaching or treating patients she enjoys singing and writing songs, rock climbing, snowboarding and hiking with her family.
