After experiencing the unprecedented growth of rural tourism on the Bonavista Peninsula throughout her youth, Madelyn attended Memorial University to study cultural geography. Within the Geography program, Madelyn took a keen interest in attempting to understand long-term rural sustainability. Madelyn focused her multimedia Honors project, Finding Home, on how one may experience home as a settler on the Bonavista Peninsula while surrounded by historical tourism ventures. Madelyn will conduct similar research in the Geography Masters program at Memorial University in the upcoming year. Joining Otter Housing Association was an easy “yes” given her extensive research and ties to Port Rexton and surrounding area.
