McKenna was born in Washington, D.C. and moved to Mexico City with her family when she was five. Her love of acting began while performing in Spanish for her school plays. When she moved back to the U.S. to attend high school in Nashville, TN, she set her sights on acting in English.

McKenna is now an Equity NYC-based actor. Her Off-Broadway debut was in the Mint Theatre Company's production of The Mountains Look Different which received a NYT Critic's Pick. Her second Off-Broadway show was in William Mastrosimone's new play Rules of Desire where she originated the role of Felicia.


She is a member of the Theatre Performance Class of 2020 at Fordham University at Lincoln Center, where some of her favorite credits include The Way West, Icarus's Mother, Blasted, Macbeth, and Dark Play or Stories for Boys which she and her classmates took to the Edinburgh Fringe festival in the summer of 2019. She returned to Mexico City to study abroad and attended Universidad Iberoamericana and the acting studio of Patricia Reyes Spindola where she shot a pilot for the telenovela La Promesa.
