Madeleine has had a wide array of experiences, ranging from working as an eco-educator in Toronto to conducting community based research in Cape Town, South Africa. Before joining the Pivot team, she worked in the Downtown Eastside at Watari, providing wellness and mental health support services to residents of the neighbourhood. Originally hailing from Toronto, Madeleine served as a refugee rights advocate and settlement worker for newly arrived refugee claimants at Romero House in the city’s west end before completing her M.A. in Geography at the University of Western Ontario.
In her spare time, Madeleine loves all things outdoors and travel related. She recently cycled the Pacific Coast from Comox to the Mexican border.
