About McKenna

McKenna has created a practice that embodies the values she cultivated during her social work education. Prior to going to law school she spent a year in child welfare advocating for families and helping them achieve their goals. While at Creighton Law McKenna served as the Law Student Wellness Society Vice President and the Woman’s Law Student Association’s Director of Pro Bono. McKenna has spent the last year at a small general practice law firm assisting clients with all sorts of legal problems. She excels with cases that impact families and are full of strong emotions.

When she is not in the courtroom McKenna can be found in the yoga studio, admiring old architecture, or taking her mom’s basset hounds Murphy and Oakley on long walks.
