Madeline grew up a short drive away from Hidden Villa in Menlo Park, CA. She has always enjoyed working with people, and was drawn to work in communications because she wanted to learn more the roles different strategies for outreach play in running a nonprofit organization. Madeline grew up attending Hidden Villa’s summer camp programs, and previously worked as a camp counselor. She appreciates that Hidden Villa is a safe space for everyone, and values the community that Hidden Villa fosters. Her favorite activities at Hidden Villa are hiking and hanging out with the sheep. She also enjoys grabbing a stalk of rhubarb from the Ed Garden when she’s needing a quick snack. Her favorite mission-related book is Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult.
