She met her husband at Snow College where they were both playing sports and they were married in 2014. They lived in Cedar City, and then moved up to Logan so her husband could play football for USU and never left! They have one little girl, Avery, who is almost 2 and has already been to more volleyball practices and games than most people do in their whole lives! She loves it. Madi currently teaches Special Education at Wellsville Elementary.

She graduated with her associates degree. She then transferred to Southern Utah University where her senior year she was named 1st team all conference for the Big Sky. She still enjoys playing whenever she gets the chance!

She then coached at Mtn Peak and finally the JV team at Ridgeline High School. Madi continues to love coaching and does private lessons and skills camps.
WHY I COACH: "I coach because I have a passion for it like nothing else. I’ve had coaches that have literally changed my life for the better, and I hope to be able to do that to at least one athlete. I love seeing athletes grow both on the court, as well as off. I hope to foster that love for volleyball and how special it is to play a sport with a team. There’s nothing else like it!"
