Maddie is passionate about advocating for a vibrant, equitable, ecologically resilient food system and has led NOFA-VT's policy work since 2015. Maddie grew up in Vermont and moved back in 2013 after spending five years living in Utah and Colorado working in outdoor education and on farms. Working on farms out west inspired her to dig into food-system and farm policy and advocate for change to help farms be more economically viable and climate-resilient. She is honored to be able to do this work in her home state to support Vermont's incredible farmers. She loves gardening, mountain biking, canoeing, and just about anything that involves being outside with her family. She lives in Cambridge with her husband, three sons, and two chocolate labs.
