From a young age, Maddie had a passion for the great outdoors. Many school holidays were spent at adventurous WA locations – Ningaloo, Karijini National Park, and Rottnest Island, which only fuelled her adventurous passion further. Coupled with an excitement for learning about the natural environment, Maddie studied Coastal and Marine Science at university.
These studied led her to some remote, yet amazing, locations including camping on the uninhabited Delambre Island while monitoring nesting sea turtles, living and working in the Kimberleys on a pearl farm 200km north of Broome and monitoring nesting sea turtles while based in Exmouth.
In the winter months, Maddie enjoys hitting the trails with the Numbat Trail at Paruna Wildlife Sanctuary being one of her favourites. In the summer months, you can find Maddie at the beach – snorkelling, scuba diving or surfing.
Keen to share her outdoorsy passion with others, Maddie is currently studying a Cert III in Outdoor Leadership.
