Raised in sunny Florida, Maddy was on the water before she could ride a bike. Maddy’s stepfather, Craig, loved fishing and introduced Maddy to fishing at a very early age so that he could have a fishing buddy for exotic trips all over the world. Pretty soon, Maddy was fishing all over South Florida in remembrance of her stepdad. She began fishing competitively in South Florida and all over the world. Once she fished her first tournament, she knew she wanted to fish and be involved with boating for the rest of her life. Maddy soon found another passion in running tournaments and now heads up the SKIP’S Tournaments in the Bahamas as well as several other South Florida Sailfish Tournaments. Maddy recently obtained her Yacht Broker’s license and is now a leading broker on the DH Yacht Sales team.
