After attending an event in which the Hawthorne Strategy Group leadership team spoke about “Get Covered Illinois,” Maddie was immediately drawn to Hawthorne because of its meaningful work, diverse clients, and ability to learn from professionals she admires. She is excited to immerse herself in Hawthorne’s client-centered work environment. As Hawthorne’s Fellow, Maddie looks forward to contributing her expertise to the development and execution of communications strategies for her clients.
Maddie is experienced in writing and editing, media relations, social media, video production, and event planning. Prior to coming to Hawthorne, Maddie served as an intern for Aeris, a global technology company with operations in San Jose, Calif., and Chicago, and as a brand ambassador for a local marketing organization serving the beverage industry.
Maddie graduated with B.A. in public relations and advertising from DePaul University. Her future plan is to pursue a master’s degree in business. When she is not storytelling for Hawthorne and its clients, Maddie enjoys yoga, reading, and spending time with her two long-haired chihuahuas.
