Madi graduated from Utah State University in 2020 with a BFA in Theatre Education and a minor in English Teaching. Madi began her teaching career while in college, teaching creative drama classes to students K-8 at Unicorn Theatre; working as a guest teaching artist, facilitating arts integrated English and Biology lessons in a number of 3rd grade classrooms; and tutoring at risk students at Fast Forward High School.  

In 2020, Madi started her career in Early Childhood Education and fell in love with teaching preschool. She worked as a lead teacher in the 3-4 year old classroom at KinderCare in Denver, Colorado.  A year later,  she accepted a lead preschool teacher position at The Applewood School in Lakewood, Colorado. Madi knew she had found her calling in cultivating young minds, helping students grow as learners and people, and simply exploring the world side by side with young children. 

Madi recently relocated to Austin, Texas. She is excited to be a part of the Lupine Lane community, and she is eager to build a strong, positive relationship with the students and families here!
