Dr. Mary McKenzie is medical director of CHI Memorial Integrative Medicine Associates.
Born in Georgia, but raised in southern Ohio by parents native to Chattanooga, Dr. McKenzie has always felt she had southern roots. Pursuing medicine has always been a life-long dream. She graduated valedictorian of her local high school then went on to attend Otterbein University where she majored in life science and played collegiate volleyball. She graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science degree with Honors in 2002. In 2007 she graduated from Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine with a full scholarship sponsor under the US Air Force Health Professions Scholarship Program. After completing her internship in Emergency Medicine at Doctors Hospital, Columbus, Ohio she went on to serve four years active duty in the US Air Force. Stationed in middle Georgia at Robins AFB, she was a flight surgeon specialized in aerospace medicine, primarily managing the care of aviators and special operations personnel. In 2015 she completed her residency in Family Medicine at University of Tennessee College of Medicine-Chattanooga. Dr. McKenzie served as Chief Resident and was awarded the Outstanding Resident Teaching Award.Her passion for integrative medicine evolved quickly after rotating with Dr. Jeff Jump during her residency. The concepts of incorporating a more holistic approach to patient care and housing several medical disciplines (acupuncture, nutrition, mental health, hormone replacement, massage) under one roof made perfect sense and clearly patients are desiring more options for their healthcare. The mind-body-spirit triad to health and healing is exemplified by this practice and pursued by Dr. McKenzie.
She is married to her high school sweetheart with three beautiful, rambunctious boys.
