Maddie joined Living Local 360 as a designer in the summer of 2015. But she has been familiar with Living Local 360 for long before that. Her parents, Steve and Kim Russo, own the company, something that gives Maddie a unique perspective. She has seen the company grow and has an intimate understanding of its mission and goals.
In addition to working as Living Local 360’s designer, Maddie works as Campus Manager for University Tees at Chapman University in Orange, California where she attends college. She is majoring in public relations and advertising and will minor in graphic design – all of which make her a perfect fit for Living Local 360.
Dividing her time between California and Sandpoint, Idaho, Maddie enjoys the outdoors and especially enjoys playing volleyball, a sport she participated in at Sandpoint High School.
Maddie shares that she enjoys her work with Living Local 360 and having a part in helping to create a community-based product that brings people together and keeps them informed. “I also love working with such thoughtful and hard working people,” adds Maddie.
Not only is Maddie a dedicated worker, but she is enthusiastic about the part she plays in the company. When asked what her favorite quote is, she replied, “Work hard in silence, let your success be the noise.”
