Maddie is a Hamden native who grew up just a few blocks away from the Museum in the Whitneyville neighborhood. She graduated from the University of Connecticut in 2009 with a BA in Theatre Studies and a Minor in Women’s Studies. Over the last 13 years, she has worked as a theatre artist, administrator, educator, and activist in the New Haven community. She has had the honor of working for Collective Consciousness Theatre, Cooperative Arts & Humanities Magnet High School, the Shubert Theatre, The International Festival of Arts & Ideas, Long Wharf Theatre, and the Connecticut Center for Nonviolence.

Maddie’s values of anti-racism, inclusion, empathy, and joy have been cultivated by participation in a variety of workshops and programs including the Neighborhood Leadership Program, Community Leadership Program, Undoing Racism, Beyond Diversity 101, HOT Schools Summer Institute, and Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence- RULER. These experiences continuously shape how she navigates the world, creating a curriculum and developing policies and procedures that recognize the whole person. She is thrilled to be working with the Museum and to ensure all people feel welcomed and taken care of throughout their stay.
