For two years Kenzie dated Tyler Jepsen, they had a happy relationship in which he treated her very well. Then things started to hange, he was keeping things to himself and in her opinion actung strange then one day he was just gone. This devastated her, she didn't understand why he had left and wondered if it was something he had done. She didn't know if she should wait for him to return but after two years and not a word she gave up hope that he would return to her. Finally she decided that she needed to get out of London and took a vacation to Chantilly, France where she met Derrick Halliwell. He intrigued her with the knowledge that he had. He had told her the story of Eros and Psyche and for the first time since Tyler had left her she had let a man touch her let alone share a kiss with him.
After sharing a kiss and a story with Derrick she returned to London after her trip feeling that she might be ready to start another relationship. On a dark rainy night she and Riley Anderson snuck into a warehouse to investigate a case of smuggling. She'd known Riley for awhile and had worked a few cases with him but she hadn't ever considered a relationship with him till that night. It was that night that the two of them started a serious relationship that lasted nearly two years. In that time they had many disagreements mostly about the things that he would not tell her and the fact that he wouldn't introduce her to his daughter. She felt these were important things if they were going to be together a long time which at that time she felt was a possibility and something that she wanted.
Many of their fights revolved around an auction that she had been drug into where she was won by Everett Tamasine who she had met before at the Leaky Cauldron. She went on her date with him to the magical zoo and had a good time but in the end returned to Riley.
It was after the Acromantula attack on Hogwarts when he visited her in the hospital that she realized her realized that her relationship might be in danger. He had brought the news that he had told Emma Hope that he loved her. It upset her to hear this but she knew that that if she wanted to be with him she woukd have to accept it. He had also informed her of the things he would no longer tolerate with her. At this point she wasn't sure where she stood with him and decided to stop doing the things that irritated him. Still that wasn't enough and in the end he cheated on her with Emma Hope and broke up with her two days later telling her she would never be happy with him. Yet again she was devastated but did her best to move on.
Kenzie met Sean Truxell when Riley had called her to Emma's office for a meeting. Upon reaching the office she found out they'd met before in Wales. She soon found out he's a member of the Order of the Dragon's. Depsite how everyone else felt about him she didn't make her decision about what she thougt of him till later when he caught her going through the files of the Dragon Handling department. Kenzie decided that he could be trusted to some extent and it seemed the ministry thought they would be a good pair together since they were now being ordered to get married.

"Dealing with things that could kill you if they so wished was something she did on a daily basis and the fear of those creatures had left her a long time ago." ~Norwegian Mountains ~ If my childs not alive…
“It is good to be proud of your heritage but I don’t really think that blood status is that important anymore. So much has changed and I don’t know maybe it’s because I’m halfblood that I don’t think it matters.” ~Small Town, Usa – Seminars and Ferris Wheels
"The creatures needed her and she had responsibilities as co-division head that she had to get back to."~Back to the Daily Grind
"Kenzie was only trying to be fair even though she hadn’t been treated fairly in her opinion. She didn’t think it was fair of her to still be friends with Riley and not at least try to be friends with Emma." ~It was bound to happen sooner or later
