Prior to joining XPRIZE, Madeline worked as an event director for the United States Tennis Association, the national governing body for the sport of tennis. There, she made a name for herself by creating innovative experiential events that rebranded the sport and brought program participation to record highs.
Madeline earned a degree in Broadcast & Digital Journalism at the University of Southern California, and worked as a news producer in Grand Rapids, MI early in her career. Driven by her passion to celebrate a community’s culture and its members’ diverse perspectives, Madeline ventured beyond journalism to explore the art of hosting events that forge lasting connections. By doing so, she sought to transcend the daily news cycle and create real and lasting impact – in which she succeeded.
