As a Chicago native, Madison grew up with cold noses and warm hearts. A natural born connector, Madison values meaningful relationships and is always asking bold questions to get to the real, raw ‘why.’
Currently, Madison is driving Strategic Partnerships at Wonder Women Tech (WWT), an organization dedicated to empowering the underserved, underrepresented, women, LGBTQ, veterans and minorities in STEAM. She advocates for education that opens doors for young women, minorities and programs that empower both women in the workplace & entrepreneurs to succeed personally and professionally.
Her diverse & global background as an entrepreneur and IT consultant for Fortune 500 clients in industrial automation, manufacturing in China,
startups, & software shapes her view/passion for an interconnected world.
She’s excited about championing diversity and inclusion efforts and the future of work, a place where people can show up authentically and fully human.
A lover of languages and cultures (she dabbles in Italian, Chinese, Spanish & Arabic), Madison also studies Egyptian and Tahitian dances.
Madison is a proud graduate of Emory University where she double-majored in Economics & Chinese Language and Literature. She also holds a graduate certificate from the Stanford University Graduate School of Business.
