McKenzie Rockwood is a registered dietitian nutritionist and co-founder of Citrus Pear, a healthy freezer meal prep service. Before starting Citrus Pear in 2016 with her husband, Mace, McKenzie was an inpatient registered dietitian at Logan Regional Hospital for six years, where she worked with patients who required special diets for medical conditions or allergies. As she worked with these patients, she saw a need to make healthy eating easy. This experience drove McKenzie to create Citrus Pear, where she now oversees menu and recipe development, as well as growth opportunities to bring Citrus Pear meals and classes to people and communities in need. In 2021, McKenzie was recognized as a Young Dietitian of the Year by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the world’s largest organization of food and nutrition professionals. Rockwood also has been named one of Salt Lake Magazine’s Women in Business. McKenzie and Mace have three boys who keep them busy and laughing.
