Maddie Dineen

If you can’t find Maddie, go look in the nearest tree or the closest wetland.

As a graduate of UW’s Certificate of Wetland Science and Management, Maddie’s love for wetlands can’t be overstated. They’re a huge environmental nerd with an affinity for rock hounding, tree climbing, and painting. They grew up in Omaha, NE where their adoration of the outdoors was fostered by constant outdoor play and hiking trips with their family. Maddie found their love of the intersection between environmental work and science communication after completing a very winding road through undergrad, AmeriCorps, and grad school. They’ve worked as an environmental scientist on a light rail extension project in the region, a program manager for a regional fisheries enhancement group, and as a science teacher for elementary students. They absolutely adore the PNW and in their free time they can be found on the trails, knee deep in wetlands, or curled up with their partner and their three cats (Fred, Hogarth, and Cappuccino).
