For this show we delve more into Maddie's experience of having grown up in a cult and experiencing ritual abuse. She'll be doing her own series on Mental Health News Radio so we'll look for more discussions about her experiences.

She has developed curriculum, specialized in accreditation, and assisted over 12,000 students to reach their personal goals.

She has taken coursework towards a certification in Equine Assisted Learning at Prescott College in Prescott, Arizona, and is a Level 2 Graduate in the Parelli Natural Horsemanship program.
