Maddy Branham is a senior studying marketing at Marshall University and looking to make a difference on her campus and in her community. She is a member of the American Marketing Association, Society for Advancement of Management, and Beta Gamma Sigma. Outside of class, Maddy is a majorette in Marshall’s marching band, and she enjoys hiking, kayaking, golfing, and watching sports.
Starting out her freshman year of college, Maddy knew she wanted to pursue a career that would allow her to help others, but she didn’t know what that would look like. After taking an Introduction to Business course, she realized that she could achieve this desire to help others through business and design thinking. After being offered an internship at Marshall’s iCenter (Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship), Maddy was able to gain a deeper understanding of the design thinking process. She is excited to learn more about design thinking and spread innovation and entrepreneurship through the University Innovation Fellows program, as well as connect with other students across the world!
