Madeline has been passionate about global experiences and cross-cultural exchange since her own study abroad experience in Copenhagen, Denmark during her junior year at Wheaton College. After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science, she returned to Denmark to work for the same study abroad program, DIS Abroad. There, her responsibilities included collaborating with Danish faculty and staff to facilitate classes, programs, and events, advising students about Danish culture and life in Copenhagen, and leading course-embedded study tours to Belgium, Germany, and Kosovo. Since returning to the United States, Madeline has worked with international exchange and study abroad programs at the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences and, most recently before joining MISTI, led and managed all aspects of Babson College's BRIC: The Cornerstone of the New Global Economy, a comparative study abroad program that travels to Russia, China and India in a semester. In 2017, she earned a Master of Arts in International Higher Education and Intercultural Relations from Lesley University.

Madeline joined MISTI in 2018 as Program Coordinator for MIT-India, and she has also worked with MIT-UK. In her current role as Managing Director for MIT-Denmark, Madeline facilitates opportunities for collaboration and exchange between Denmark and the Institute.

In her free time, Madeline enjoys riding her bike, listening to podcasts, and playing Dungeons & Dragons.
