Maddie grew up in Western New York State. She graduated as valedictorian of her high school then moved to Baltimore, Maryland to attend Johns Hopkins University. There she majored in neuroscience and discovered her passion for medicine. She then attended Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in Cleveland, Ohio where she earned her medical degree. During medical school she gained her first exposure to the operating room and instantly knew she wanted to be a surgeon. She continued to pursue her interest in the nervous system and was happy to discover that neurosurgery fit with her career goals, allowing her to treat complex patients with acute presentations. Her sub-internship at the University of Washington confirmed that goal and she began her residency in Seattle in 2017. Maddie enjoys hiking, skiing, and exploring the city with her friends during time away from the hospital.
