Madeline Fulp (or Maddie, as we know her) is an Instructional Systems Designer (ISD) with CHA. She’s been with CHA for 3½ years taking content from various source documents and altering it to meet training needs and objectives. She’s one of our powerhouse employees who makes complicated tasks appear easy and fun. From Day One, Maddie has embraced the office relationships she has made, so it’s not surprising that Maddie says her favorite thing about working at CHA is her coworkers. She values the atmosphere of creative positivity CHA fosters and we can certainly attest that she is one of the reasons we’re happy to come to work each day.
Maddie is smart, determined, driven, and caring, all qualities that make her invaluable to CHA. When she says she gives everything to whatever she undertakes, she is not exaggerating. One of her greatest strengths is how much of herself she puts into everything she does to produce the best product she can. This is especially evident any time she is helping someone else. Maddie has one of the biggest hearts we’ve ever seen.
Maddie is not a veteran herself, but is a proud Navy spouse. Her husband of three years, Justin, is a Fire Control Technician Second Class (FT2) and is currently serving on a submarine. The two are loving “fur parents” to Sven, the “best Jack Russell-Beagle mix ever.” Although Justin sometimes likes to joke that Maddie loves Sven more than she loves him, we all know that isn’t true (most days, anyway).
When she’s not giving everything to us here at CHA, Maddie can usually be found on a softball field. She’s played the sport since she was 3 years old and played Division II softball at Brevard College (go Tornadoes!). She plays rec ball these days, but wishes she could be playing more. When Justin can tear her away from the softball field, the two love attending concerts, traveling, cheering on their favorite sports teams in person, dancing, or visiting family in North Carolina.
It was difficult to find something no one knows about Maddie. But with some expert digging, we learned she is quite musically inclined! She’s been playing the piano since the age of 5, can play any saxophone (though her favorite is the baritone sax), and also plays the clarinet. She’s one of those people who can usually pick up any instrument and figure out how to play it.
CHA will be doing great things in the future if Maddie has anything to say about it. Her vision of just how far we can go is inspiring and motivational. We just hope the Navy doesn’t take her away from us any time soon!
