Maddie grew up in Connecticut, but having been born in Houston, Texas, decided there was a southern girl somewhere deep inside her and gave Tulane University a try. Turns out she was wrong, and ended up transferring to NYU, where she completed her studies in Photography & Entrepreneurship. Maddie landed on the Marketing Team at VFA after spending time in marketing and design positions at startups of varying sizes around New York. Now, she’s a part of the Talent Team, focusing on recruiting the newest class of builders. Maddie loves developing recipes for her vegan food blog, talking to babies on the street, and wearing cozy sweaters, much to the dismay of her perpetually overheated body.
