Maddie was born and raised in Edinboro, Pennsylvania and grew up always playing outside. Maddie always dreamed about being in the mountains but never really knew how to take the big leap.

She finally decided it was time to start her life and pursue her dreams. Maddie moved to Gunnison, Colorado to pursue her degree in Recreation and Outdoor Education :Outdoor Leadership. Moving to Gunnison helped kick start her guiding and outdoor career to the fullest. Following her first semester she got a job offer for the #1 Guide Service In Yosemite- Lasting Adventures. She also has been apart of the Adaptive Sports Center in Crested Butte, Outdoor Retailer: Snow Show Assistant 2020, and was the chosen outdoor diversity-inclusion speaker for SOLE 2019 (Student Outdoor Leadership Conference).

Now currently living in Lyons, CO, she is working her winter seasons at Eldora Mountain Resort and building her backcountry skiing resume. Maddie has plans for treks in the winter backcountry, Rocky Mountain National Park, Yosemite National Park, and possibly overseas this year!

Maddie is a passionate skier, climber, backpacking guide, outdoor lover, and a lady who loves to help others be apart of the outdoors in any way she can. Excited to take on her first year as a proud ambassador with Six Moon Designs, she's taking her outdoor pursuits to the moon!!!!
