With her extensive background in media relations and strategic communications, Maddie expertly reaches clients’ key stakeholders through powerful strategic messaging. She has a strong track record of getting positive attention for our clients, regularly booking television and radio appearances and securing print and magazine stories.

Maddie’s sound judgment and commitment to client satisfaction are seen throughout her work, including Goff Public’s education, hospitality and tribal government clients. Her messaging expertise and level head have also helped many of our clients manage crises and tense situations, and she turns leaders into savvy spokespeople as one of our media trainers. As part of Goff’s commitment to using our expertise for the greater good, Maddie leads our pro bono and internship programs.

Maddie started her career in the nonprofit sector, managing communications for school districts in Minnesota. She previously worked for one of the largest school districts in the state – constructing communications campaigns, supporting crisis communications responses and coordinating media relations.

When they can nab a babysitter, Maddie and her husband love to check out the latest restaurant and brewery openings, so she always has the inside scoop on must-try dishes and drinks. A Saint Paul resident, she also loves traveling and adventuring across the Twin Cities with her two young kids.
