Maddie is a 2015 graduate of Gettysburg College, where she majored in Environmental Studies and minored in Theatre Arts and Educational Studies. Active in both environmental projects and theatre productions while at Gettysburg, Maddie has embraced new experiences, including a semester abroad in Panama and travel to Costa Rica and Japan. She also loves being outdoors, and counts hiking, kayaking and birding among her favorite activities.
After graduation, Maddie was looking for a way to pursue her passion for environmental conservation through service with AmeriCorps. When Maddie learned about the Volunteer Maryland Coordinator position with Fox Haven Organic Farm and Learning Center, it seemed to be a perfect fit.
As she serves, Maddie is eager to develop leadership and volunteer coordination skills. She is especially excited to develop these skills with an organization that focuses on environmental conservation and sustainable agriculture. In the long run, Maddie would like to pursue a career in wildlife management, and she sees everything she will be doing this year as excellent preparation for that profession.
