Maddy enjoys bringing people together and often does so by cooking and baking. She used to teach a vegetarian cooking class at The Ohio State University and then took the class on the road to local restaurants in Columbus to support small businesses. Maddy spends her days in retirement doing various activities. Aside from cooking and baking, she also enjoys gardening.
Maddy first got involved with At Home By High after learning about the organization from a neighbor. She joined as a social member in 2018 and enjoys the community that comes together. In August of 2020, Maddy joined the At Home By High Board of Directors. As a board member she has been on the recruitment and event committees helping neighbors to get signed up and connected. She most enjoys contributing ideas to the board. Maddy says, “She likes the mission of the organization, it’s very clear and everything that we’re doing supports the mission. I like that the people in the neighborhood who are not economically advantaged are given additional assistance which helps them.” Maddy is also an active board member of the Friends of Goodale Park and played a strategic role in the development of the elephant fountain at the center of the pond in Goodale Park, which debuted in May of 2013 after a lengthy 11-year planning process.
