Athletic Development Coach
Growing up in St. Louis, Maddi learned to ski at the local resort in 5th grade. She immediately fell in love with skiing and begged her parents winter after winter to take her to the "real" mountains. Being in sports year round, Maddi chose to follow her love of soccer which led her to playing in college and then semi-professional in St. Louis.
Maddi graduated from Lindenwood University with a bachelor's degree in Exercise Science. After college, she knew she wanted to work with athletes and was given the opportunity to intern with the US Ski and Snowboard Team in Park City. Loving the environment of working with snowsports, she took a job with SSCV as a Strength & Conditioning Coach in August 2019.
After being in Human Performance for a year, she knew she wanted to be involved even more. She is excited to work on the hill and see the athletes in the sport they love. She is excited to give back to young athletes and help them discover their passion and potential. By taking this position, she will learn even more about the needs of the sport to help program the strength and conditioning programs.
