Madison mentioned that she wants to pursue a career in athletic training. In her senior year at Brookhaven High, she currently has a 3.96 grade-point average.

She also has strong leadership abilities and, besides working on her own game, is always willing to help others with theirs. Madison will be greatly missed, but she will be a strong addition to the tennis program at Jones.”
