Maddie was a former Platte Basin Timelapse social media intern. She graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a major in Advertising and Public Relations. Maddie grew up on a farm in northeast Nebraska where she found her love for nature, later turning it into a passion for environmental conservation. Maddie enjoys traveling, and hiking where she can soak in the beauty of nature and take photographs of landscape and other natural features. She also enjoys walking her dog, waking up for the sunrise, doing yoga, and journaling. Maddie is thankful to be part of a project that helped her expand her knowledge of environmental conservation and storytelling.
