After graduation, Madison moved to Toronto, Ontario and recently began articling at Borden Ladner Gervais LLP (BLG). She is working in their Business Law group with a focus on Indigenous and Energy Law.

Madison also holds a Bachelor of Business Administration with a concentration in Accounting from UNB. She completed her Business and Law degrees concurrently and graduated with Dean’s List Designation.
