Maddison graduated from the University of Western Australia with a Bachelor degree and Honours in Sport Science. In conjunction with the Western Australian Institute of Sport, she has been investigating the influence of evening electronic device use on sleep in athletes for her PhD, which is currently in the final review phase. Maddison has worked with a range of Olympic sports in the Physiology departments at the WA Institute of Sport and the Australian Institute of Sport, particularly with the Sailing and Rowing programs. An ex-rower herself, she has also coached high school rowing since 2009. She has recently moved to Brisbane and hopes to continue helping people improve their sleep and athletic performance.
