Maddie grew up watching WFMY in her hometown of Mount Airy and loves working close to home where it all began. She now anchors the Good Morning Show on Saturday mornings and reports for the morning team throughout the week.

Maddie graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where she reported for the award winning newscast, “Carolina Week.” She joined WFMY News 2 in June 2016 as a Multi-Skilled Journalist with a goal to tell the Triad’s stories. Maddie says she loves finding news that matters to the community and reporting it in a creative and interesting way. She also loves connecting with her community and is incredibly active on social media.

As former captain of the UNC-Chapel Hill Cheerleading team, one of Maddie's favorite collegiate memories is going to the Final Four in 2016. In 2017 she was given the opportunity to follow the Heels back to the championship reporting for WFMY News 2.

When Maddie isn't cheering on the Tar Heels she loves trying new workouts, spending time with her family and rescue cat, Stewie, and exploring the Gate City!
