McKenzie Dillon has been a member of the Slumber Yard team for two years and counting, and her resume includes hundreds of sleep-related articles from mattress review products to helpful blogs containing sleep tips, news, how-to guides, and more. She considers herself a bed, pillow, and topper expert, and knows her way around the bed-in-a-box mattress industry.
Mckenzie graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno (go wolf pack!) with a BA in English with a specialization in writing, and a minor in journalism. Prior to sleeping on mattresses for a living, she was a music news writer and covered music festivals around the bay area including Outside Lands and Burger Boogaloo. It’s safe to say that music is a big passion of hers, right alongside quality sleep.
When she isn’t writing about the best mattress for side sleepers or testing out the newest online mattress, she’s paddleboarding in Lake Tahoe, exploring breweries, and testing her luck at being a plant mom.
