In addition to MacKinnon’s work in financial technology at JP Morgan Chase, she ran her own management technology consulting company before founding Creative Feng Shui. MacKinnon has combined her passion for the eastern practice of Feng Shui with a western aesthetic to create elegant and beautiful spaces and has applied her entrepreneurial mindset and background in establishing the consultancy.

MacKinnon has always been passionate about helping other women rediscover their inner desires and manifest the life of their dreams. She was recently a featured presenter of the Speakers Who Dare performance, sharing how her work strives to overturn misconceptions about women as she discussed her experience helping women “step into their power and greatness.”

She has taught courses on Feng Shui at the Hospital for Special Surgery and for the Global Real Estate Women’s Group at JP Morgan Chase and taught the first Feng Shui online course for the Integrative Institute of Nutrition. She has written several articles on Feng Shui and been interviewed by thought leaders in the worlds of Speaking, Art, Spirituality, Women Empowerment, and Life Transitions, particularly on transitioning from a corporate to a creative entrepreneur.
