Born and raised in Denton, Texas, Mady has always had a love and interest in animals. In Fall of 2022, she moved to Stillwater, Oklahoma, to pursue a B.S. in Zoology at Oklahoma State University. After finding the GSEH through an online job listing, she began working in August of 2023. She is currently on track to graduate in the Spring of 2026 and plans to attend graduate school to further her education. If she had to pick a favorite bird, it would be the Burrowing Owl.
