Makenna Hollandsworth

Makenna grew up in small town Washington, IA and moved to Cedar Rapids a couple years ago to live with her husband, Sebastian. She stays busy with their son Jax (1), working as a Patient Care Tech and Phlebotomist at Mercy Medical Center, an engineer in the Army Reserves, and a sales associate at Bath and Body Works for a fun side gig. When she has free time she enjoys spending it outside, watching crime documentaries, and making new memories with her family. She also loves corny jokes, iced coffee, and second hand shopping.
