Hey guys! I’m Madelyn and my favorite ways to stay active outside are hiking, swimming (bonus points for hiking to a waterfall to swim), and hammocking. It’s very common to see me around campus in my hammock doing homework or reading in the sun. My lovely dog Olive also makes plenty of appearances and she is a big motivator to go outside and enjoy benefits of being in nature for a little bit.

I make it a point to do everything I possibly can do while outdoors. Meetings, work, homework, anything and everything. I’ve found that I am happiest when I’m surrounded by nature. Fitness is also important to me; I love rock climbing and hiking. Getting outside and being fit at the same time has benefits doubled!
