As a mid-Missouri native, Madelynn experienced some of the challenges faced by rural communities, especially rural school districts. After graduating from Marshall High School, Madelynn moved to Columbia, Missouri to attend Mizzou where she earned an undergraduate degree in political science and a law degree. Through two study abroad programs in Africa, Madelynn had the opportunity to visit schools, which provided great perspective on the challenges schools face across the globe.

Madelynn previously worked as legal counsel in the Office of Special Education at the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, where she gained valuable experience in school and special education law. She served as counsel for the Office’s compliance section, acted as the liaison to the Administrative Hearing Commission for due process hearings, assisted the Attorney General’s Office with special education litigation, and counseled the state-operated schools. Madelynn also counseled the Department on personnel matters and served as a teacher discipline hearing officer.

When Madelynn is not working to support the schools of Missouri, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Blake; two sons, family, and close friends.
