Maddie grew up outside of Syracuse, NE on her family's beef farm. She has been involved in 4-H since she was 8 years old, participating in both livestock and static projects, competing in a variety of contests, and attending the Citizenship Washington Focus Trip. Her favorite part of 4-H growing up was showing beef cattle. Maddie attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where she graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Athletic Training. Maddie is excited to be in this role and looks forward to helping other find their passions through 4-H!
