Maddie and her dog Waldo are originally from Connecticut. While they are excited for the warm weather, they will certainly miss the snow. Two fun facts about Maddie: She has a national championship ring, which she received during her four year tenure with the UCONN Women’s Basketball Team managing staff; and her other car is an ambulance as she is an active EMT.
