Maddie’s family moved several times when she was a kid so she grew up in California, Colorado, and New Mexico. They settled in Redlands, California and after living and knowing Redlands as she did, she chose to attend the University of Redlands. Because of her passion for teaching and honing leadership, travel, and self discovery skills, the decision to work for ARCC was a natural fit. One of her greatest passions is facilitating experiences that allow students to discover the profound perfection of the self and others, as well as the beautiful planet we inhabit. In her free time you will find her rock climbing, drawing, practicing yoga, hiking, cooking yummy vegetarian food, or laughing and spending time with friends.
