Maddie is a native of St. Louis Park, Minnesota and is passionate about elections, campaigns, voting trends, and public policy issues regarding affordable housing, immigration, and higher education. Maddie just graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and Economics from St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota and is excited to apply what she's learned from her time on the hill to JCA's voter engagement work this summer and fall. Prior to joining the JCA staff this past June, Maddie interned at the Minnesota Department of Human Services in the Aging and Adult Services Division. In addition, Maddie has experience in electoral politics as an intern on Richfield Mayor Maria Regan Gonzalez' campaign team in 2018. In her spare time, Maddie is an avid hockey player, but is learning to love new hobbies as a retired collegiate athlete.
