She played volleyball all four years, joining varsity her junior year, and being named captain this past season. Her favorite memory of volleyball was beating the Manogue volleyball team for the first time in many years.

Outside of school, Maddie enjoys spending time with animals, music and traveling. She is working as an orderly in a vet hospital, helping to clean up and prep the surgery rooms for sick pets. She enjoys observing the veterinarian and the assistants as they care for the animals.

A self-proclaimed “Swiftie”, Maddie loves listening to Taylor Swift, often using her music on walks to help manage her stress level.
