Personal life

Rosman was born in Charleston, South Carolina.

She currently resides in West Hollywood, California. Outside of acting Rosman enjoys animals, especially horses, of which she owns many. She is a competitive equestrian show jumper and rides in jumping competitions using her horse Mentos Junior.[1] Mackenzie showed off her singing skills twice on the television series7th Heaven.

Rosman is an active supporter of fundraising for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and wishes to educate the public about the need for organ donation. Mackenzie's stepsister, Katelyn Salmont, lived with Cystic fibrosis and in late 2005, Salmont underwent a successful double lung-transplant. Her stepfather Randy donated one organ. Both girls were featured in Teen People's "20 Teens Who Will Change the World". 7th Heaven produced a special episode about cystic fibrosis titled "Back in the Saddle Again" which featured Salmont as herself, and Rosman and Salmont rode horses together, as they did at home. In 2005, 7th Heaven again brought Salmont on the show, post-transplant, which gave her a chance to explain about the new life she had been given in the episode entitled "X-Mas". Salmont died from pneumonia and cystic fibrosis on Christmas 2008.[2] Rosman also supports Childhelp Inc. and is an ambassador for the organization, which helps severely abused children.[3] Rosman is also the national honorary chairman for CureFinders, a school fundraising program to help fund the search for a cure for cystic fibrosis.[2]

Rosman graduated from Valencia High School in late May 2007.
