Maddie started her career on a presidential campaign in Iowa, managing in-state voter outreach and volunteer coordination as she was fresh out of college. From there, she continued moving around the country and transitioned to working in communications on two high profile U.S. Senate and House races in one cycle. She made the jump to Washington D.C. to manage communications for the Southeast and Midwest region at the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC.) Following her stint at the NRCC, Maddie served as a Communications Director on Capitol Hill, while still doing campaign work. Most recently, Maddie worked in Communications at the Republican Governors Association (RGA.) A native of Annapolis, Maryland, Maddie graduated with honors from Eastern University in Saint Davids, Pennsylvania with a degree in Political Science.
“Working on a political campaign provides you with the opportunity to learn innumerable skills in a short amount of time. Most importantly, you learn how to work hard, work under immense pressure, and that no job is too small no matter who you are. These are skills that translate to every line of work. You will meet so many different people from all walks of life, all of whom you can learn from. And you will collect some crazy stories along the way.”
“Do what you say you are going to do. There are few things more important in work and life than following through.”
“If you are just starting out, dive into the work head-first, but pay attention to detail. Be adaptable and approachable. Ask people around you if you can learn from them. That’s killing two birds with one stone: you gain knowledge and make someone feel good about themselves at the same time.”
