Madeline has had an interest in nature from a young age, from the spider in the window to the birds at the feeder, which only grew after her first taste of wildlife rehabilitation at the age of ten. Since then, she has worked with numerous native species, including birds of prey, turtles, bats, and Bear. She also is frequently spotted presenting and educating others on avian predators at numerous events across the fox valley, along with the rest of the team at Aves Wildlife Alliance.

When not helping your pets or wildlife, Madeline loves to enjoy other outdoor activities, including gardening, hiking, and just exploring the outdoors. She shares a home with her one-eyed cat Impa, along with other family pets.
