Since Maddie Maloney’s diagnosis with T1D at age thirteen, she has centered her life around thriving with diabetes, athletics, and advocacy. Maddie grew up a competitive tennis player in Idaho and didn’t let her diagnosis of T1D stop her from pursuing her dreams of division 1 tennis at Seattle University. While attending Seattle U, Maddie was a team captain, all WAC conference athlete, President and Founder of SU’s College Diabetes Network Chapter, a JDRF and adidas intern, and a Lyfebulb and Diabetes Sports Project Ambassador. Since college, Maddie has pursued a career in the diabetes space, as a medical device sales representative. When not working or managing her T1D, Maddie enjoys yoga, traveling, hiking, playing tennis, making friends, and cooking yummy vegan treats!
