Current Rock of Residence:


Island Girl Since:


Originally Hails From:


Madeline found herself confused and sweaty (but smiling!) on the rock of Cozumel when she married an island boy in 2012. And no, they did not meet on vacation. After the birth of their first son, the couple decided to relocate to Coz permanently and she began to be entranced by the flora, fauna, culture, and Island Pirate People. Though originally a proud Oregonian, Madeline enjoys her time on Cozumel and is still learning to navigate island life in pants.

You can find her on Instagram @7strongoregon or on her blog about family nomadic life, Seven Strong Oregon.
