McKenna was a very active toddler, so her parents decided to enroll her into gymnastics so she could have a safe place to burn off energy. She trained at Active Athletics in Littleton, Colorado for levels 5-9. She was the 2012 Level 5 State All-Around and Balance Beam Champion. In 2014, McKenna skipped level 6 and quickly moved up to level 7 where she placed eighth in the all-around with a 37.675 and fourth on balance beam. She competed level 8 for the next two seasons. She qualified to the 2015 Region 3 Championships. In 2016, McKenna won the vault title at the State Championships. At the Region 3 Championships, she placed seventh on vault, eighth on uneven bars and 12th in the all-around with a 37.000.
Following her 2017 season, McKenna moved to Colorado Gymnastics Institute in Aurora, CO. She had a great level 9 season in 2018 where she placed second in the all-around with a 37.700, first on vault and second on floor exercise at the State Championships. At the Region 3 Championships, she finished third in the all-around with a 37.375 and first on vault. McKenna qualified to the Level 9 Western Nationals in Salt Lake City, UT, finishing seventh in the all-around with a 37.425, second on vault and eighth on uneven bars.
