Why Madison Loves Colorado
Born in Colorado but raised in Minnesota, Madison was called back to the mountains to enjoy all the state has to offer – camping, hiking, and craft beer (just missing those rivers and lakes!). Madison is a mom to daughter James (Sept 2022), partner to Nick, and resides in Southwest Littleton with family nearby.
