Audrey (Whitfield) MacKenzie (C’82)

Fearlessly combining technology and (Christian) Science

If you ask one of the world’s most accomplished tech founders and executives how she got her start, you’re likely to hear more about the Battle of Waterloo than computer science and coding. Principia “made me fearless,” says Audrey (Whitfield) MacKenzie—a startup founder in the AI space, award-winning tech COO and CEO, D2C ecommerce pioneer, and current Chief Information Officer at The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston. The tech visionary picked up her coding skills outside of Principia College, but found something even more valuable at Principia: “I learned how to be passionate about something and an independent learner. That made all the difference in my career.”
