Hi friends! My name is Maddie and I use she/her pronouns. I hail from the bluegrass fields of Kentucky and have also studied architecture at Washington University in St. Louis and designed affordable homes in Seattle and Sacramento. I am currently pursuing my Master of Architecture at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design.
I’m here at Glynwood because I believe that the future of our built systems can be written in the same language as our agricultural systems: resilience cultivated by mutual benefit, local gratitude, and community wealth. I’m excited to learn lessons from our oldest teachers—the plants—and from the cutting-edge scientists and leaders who call Glynwood home.
My role this summer combines storytelling and field work to document the past, present, and future of the Multirose Thicket—including the stories and histories of the people and plants so closely tied to its transformation into a restored landscape. I will build informational prairie grass booklets, create site mappings, cultivate natives, and (hopefully) make lots of new friends along the way—human and plant alike.
I am a lover of super salty pretzels, mossy bricks, sleepy puppies, and pants with a million pockets. I look forward to getting to know the Hudson Highlands, and you, this summer!
