Mackenzie Doheny

Executive Assistant and EA Coach

Mackenzie is an executive assistant (EA) with over 20 years of experience working with C-Suite executives, presidents, and founders in the non-profit, private, and public spaces. In addition, she has over 10 years of experience hiring, training, and managing administrative assistants—both to work on her team and to support other executives.

In 2016, Mackenzie founded a virtual assistant firm that provides professional and personal assistance to owners and CEOs that works to ensure the same level of integrity, dedication, and care given in a face-to-face environment is also given while working remotely. Her collaboration with CO2 began at the beginning of this journey with CO2 being her first client. The partnership has been an underpinning in deepening the knowledge of the true nature of the relationship between a CEO and their assistant stemming from CO2’s Managing Partners’ work with that relationship and the CEOs he coaches.

Mentoring and training Executive Assistants in best practices has been part of her repertoire for many years, and in 2020 she developed a formal, 8-week coaching program for Executive Assistants to learn the core values of the EA role, develop their personal brand and elevate their role to that of a strategic partner to their leader. Her coaching aligns with CO2’s values: asking questions designed to gain understanding, promoting self-awareness, a growth mindset, and acting authentically and non-judgmentally.

When she is not hard at work, Mackenzie can be found hiking, running, camping, swimming in the ocean, or having dance parties with her two sons.
