Madolyn, a native Arkansan, joined the Rise team in the fall of 2021 after moving back from Tennessee. During her time in Nashville, she worked within the Tennessee Foster System. Through those experiences, she found her passion for the foster system, advocacy, and social justice. She chose to get her graduate degree so she could further her work with children and families affected by grief, trauma, broken systems, and injustices of the world.
“I do this work because connection is one of the most important parts of being alive. I feel that if someone is willing to be brave enough to walk into my room, it is my responsibility to give everything I can to help. I believe that many of our patterns, behaviors, and thoughts are byproducts of the unique world we were each raised within and by understanding who we are in our world and how to stand firm in it, that is where we find healing.”
Madolyn received her undergraduate degree from the University of Mississippi and her masters from the University of Tennessee College of Social Work.
Madolyn serves clients in Little Rock.
