I’ve known Maddy for about a year now, and our professional circles cross often. After noticing her ability for connecting with people in a networking setting, I invited her to apply as a speaker for WordCamp Chicago, which I organize each year. Maddy was able to find a great niche within an already specialized event, and put together an excellent presentation. I’d love to have her back again next year!

Madeline has been a great addition to my blogging staff. She produces high quality written content with minimal guidance and always within the time frame I need it. Not only is Madeline knowledgeable on a variety of digital marketing topics, but she is constantly suggesting new ideas to extend blog reach. Great communicator and definite team player. Has a witty sense of humor, too. Highly recommended.
Maddy created a new website for our organization (Surety Association of Illinois) with a quick turnaround time. She was easy to work with and proposed a solution that empowered us to make future changes on our own via wordpress. Maddy walked us through this system and we are glad to have had her expertise in this process.

With her help, our Facebook likes went from 23 to over 2,000 and she set up and encouraged us to leverage YELP to attract local diners. In addition, she always brought creative ideas and solid execution to our digital media efforts.
