Maddie’s Footprints Staff
Edie was born and raised in Scott, Louisiana, and graduated from Carencro High School and LSU. She has worked in the non-profit industry for 11 years, with much of that time being spent with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Edie has two grown children, Shelby and Josh, and owns her own trail racing company, Paix Running. When she is not working with Maddie’s or Paix Running, Edie enjoys running in town and on wooded trails. When asked about her transition to Maddie’s, “I am honored to work with such an incredible organization. The passion of the staff and volunteers for our families makes every day meaningful. I am looking forward to being a part of Maddie’s for many years to come, and watching it grow and reach more families in the Acadiana and Greater Baton Rouge areas.”
