We are excited to celebrate McKenzie Doll, our team member since 2021, as our new executive director!

Can you tell us a little bit about your professional career?

I started my career in the for-profit world but have always known my calling was to work in the not-for-profit space. Before coming to AdventHealth, I worked for the American Heart Association (AHA) where I raised funds for cardiac programs and research within the Tampa Bay community. AHA really opened my eyes to some of the critical health disparities going on in our local community, and I knew there was more work that needed to be done. That journey led me to AdventHealth. Our Foundation has given me the opportunity to partner with local philanthropists to drive real, tangible change for our patients and the overall health of this community.

What drew you to the executive director role with AdventHealth Hillsborough Foundations?

The executive director works closely with our Hillsborough county hospital leaders to identify, strategize and implement projects and programs that are powered by philanthropy. Getting the opportunity to partner with Foundation board members, community leaders and donors to impact thousands of lives through care at AdventHealth was the biggest reason I sought out this role.

What are some of the things you’re most excited about embarking on as the new Executive Director?

One of the things I’m most passionate about is engaging the next generation of philanthropists in the Tampa Bay area. As a millennial myself, I know wholeheartedly the innate feeling of wanting to “do good” for our community, whether it is donating my time, talent or treasure to a cause I care deeply about.

I’m already working on some networking opportunities and fundraising events to engage young professionals, families and volunteers in Hillsborough who can rally together to positively impact the health of Tampa Bay and leave a long-lasting legacy for generations to come.

If you could describe yourself in one word, what would it be?


When you’re not working, what does everyday life look like?

My husband, Will, and I are very active in the South Tampa community and love spending time with family and friends every chance we get. We love biking Bayshore on the weekends to soak in the Florida sun, being “foodies” and trying all the new restaurants in town and volunteering with our local church. We also have three “fur babies” at home, who we love deeply!

Is there anything else you’d like to share with us?

Just how excited I am for this next chapter as the executive director, working to deliver world-class health care, close to home. There is a wonderful opportunity in our community to ensure more people receive the whole-person, compassionate care they deserve.
