In the spring of her senior year, Maddie had an opportunity to intern for five months here with Vision, where she discovered a passion for the work we do and what we stand for. Upon her college graduation, she accepted a full-time position and began her professional career here. Maddie loves spending time usually reading or traveling alongside her husband, Aaron.

Why do you love your job? I enjoy my job wholeheartedly because I have the privilege of getting to know a person and influencing a monumental time in their life; it is making a difference and caring for people in a way I would have never thought of before.

What do you do outside of work? I enjoy cozying up at home and reading alongside my two puppies! I also spend a majority of my time watching my husband, and sometimes my younger brother, play hockey!

What are your hobbies? I love to travel, but even more so, I love the process of traveling (minus the rushed packing moments)–so the airports, the car rides, the gas station snack stops, and all that jazz make me a giddy gal!

My favorite sport: As much as I can have a love-hate relationship with it… hockey, for sure. I did play lacrosse throughout my high school years and loved that sport!

My favorite movie: My favorite movie is The Longest Ride.

My favorite book: Any book by Elisabeth Elliot is an easy 5/5! I would have to say that Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers and Adorned by Nancy Demoss Wolgemuth are up there on my list of favorites.

Motto you live by: Galatians 2:20

What is something people don’t know about you? I have a blog that I like to work on in my free time–I love to write!
