My name is Mackenzie Kijowski. I was born and raised in Armstrong County, PA. I have a son, Ezra who graduated from Lenape Tech and is joining the apprenticeship for Operating Engineers Local 66. I’m married to an amazing man who is my soul flame in this crazy world, his name is Michael. We got married January 26th, 2020.
I‘m an animal lover to say the least and have 9, yes I said 9, beautiful furrbabies. My doggos are Shelby, Nova and Scout. My kitties are Scrapper, Nubbins, Sassy, Dolly, Boog and Queso. I tried my hand in rescuing animals and as you can see I’m a foster fail.
I graduated from Culinary Arts at Lenape Vo-Tech in 2004, I earned my Bachelor's degree from Indiana University of Pennsylvania for Family and Consumer Science Education in 2010. I subbed many years at Armstrong School District and taught in Pittsburgh, PA. I'm currently a Program Specialist at Armstrong Care, Inc. I've also helped several brides in my spare time plan their weddings. I'm a Virgo so over the top attention to detail and organization are my forte!
Since I was a little girl I was always making wedding dresses for my Barbie’s or drawing up designs I wanted to create. I started off wedding/event planning, not only my wedding, but helping several people throughout the years. I’m always planning a party for something and my attention to detail is impeccable.
In 2022, I had to put my wedding/event planning and basically my life on hold as I suffered several medical issues one after another. I was in and out of the hospital with basic knowledge of my diagnosis, Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension(IIH). I was having flare ups with my Lupus and Fibromyalgia but nothing compared to dealing with IIH. For 5 months my body endured so many tests, procedures, needles and medications. I had so much built up pressure in my skull that my brain was being pushed down on my spinal canal. After months of nothing helping my last resort was just dealing with it, which was taking a toll on my mental health. I have suffered deliberating migraines and other symptoms lasting months long with no sign of easing up. I have always suffered from migraines for 20+ years and thankfully a doctor pieced everything together and by the end of 2022, I was having brain surgery. I was diagnosed with Chiari 1 Malformation, which is when my cerebellum tonsils have displaced into my spinal canal due to my brain being pushed down due to pressure. I'm proud to say I'm a Chiari Malformation warrior and currently doing better than I was. I'm seeing holistic doctor who has helped me feel amazing and have changed my life!!
Months after my surgery, I felt as if I was missing something in my life and I no longer wanted to live in regret. My husband instantly says "no more animals" but that wasn't it either. Early in 2023, I saw a business opportunity and tried to figure out how I can make this happen. To run a business you have to be willing to take a chance on things and that is basically what I'm doing. I couldn't pass up on this opportunity.
This bridal business started several years ago in Kittanning, Pa as Bridal Reflections by Karen Zambotti and was purchased by Shannon McDermott creating Rusted Rose Bridal. The store moved from Kittanning to Johnstown. It was sad seeing this business leave the area but I'm so excited to be bringing it back to Armstrong County!!!
