Madison Scarborough attended Baylor University, where she majored in communications. Madison is currently working on her master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling from Wake Forest University. Madison has had various experiences that have led to her passion for the type of work that Open Sky does. From 2018-2020 she volunteered at the Waco Center for Youth, a long-term psychiatric residential treatment facility serving teens. During her summers between semesters in college, Madison worked at Camp Longhorn in Burnet, Texas, where she enjoyed spending time outdoors. She then worked for the Fresh Air Fund in New York, as a camp counselor. During this time, Madison helped to provide summer experiences in the outdoors to children from New York City’s underserved communities.
After college, Madison worked for Tailwaters Fly Fishing Company in Dallas, Texas, where she shared her passion for fly-fishing and created a female fly-fishing club that she still manages. Interested in strengthening her administrative skills, Madison worked remotely for Royal Media, a leading New York City business information and media company.
Wanting to spend more time outside, Madison accepted a position as head fly-fishing guide at Colorado Trails Ranch, which led her to Durango. She has worked as a guide for Heads Up Fly Fishing in Durango and spent the summer of 2022 guiding on the upper Animas. After her season ended, Madison was excited to accept the position as front desk administrator for Open Sky, where she can use all her experiences and strengths at a company that aligns with her values.
Madison enjoys spending her free time fly-fishing, eating at good restaurants with friends, and traveling with family.
