Madison Dagg

Office Administrator

Maddie is our admin assistant. She is also the middle Dagg child, which seems to have prepared her perfectly to work at H2 Accelerator. She is pretty much unflappable even when folks around her are flapping like crazy. It’s a great quality for agency life. And life in general.
