We're excited to announce a new addition to the team! Please welcome Madison Link, who is our new AmeriCorps VISTA Member through Arizona Serve and G.E.M. Environmental STEM Outreach Specialist.
Madison was raised in Georgia with a loving, close family. She graduated summa cum laude from Georgia College & State University in three years with a Bachelor’s in Psychology and a Minor in Mathematics. She worked as a mathematics tutor at the college and as a legal assistant at a law firm while attending GCSU. She knew that she wanted to serve her country after college and joined AmeriCorps VISTA to help fight poverty through indirect service. After being raised by a science teacher mom and a data scientist dad, she realized that one of the best ways to help combat poverty is by creating STEM educational opportunities for children while collecting data that confirms those opportunities are working as intended.
She is very excited to be part of G.E.M. Environmental through the AmeriCorps VISTA as the Program Coordinator and she has already fallen in love with the beautiful city of Prescott. During her off time, she can often be found working on other charitable projects or kayaking on Watson Lake.
Welcome aboard, Madison!
