The Purdue Veterinary Medicine Communications Team is pleased to welcome back Madeline Brod, now an award-winning senior in the College of Liberal Arts Degree-in-Three accelerated degree program. Madeline initially worked as our PVM communications intern during the 2021-2022 academic year when she was a first-year student. During that time, one of the features she wrote was about then fourth-year veterinary student Bre Wilson and her study abroad experiences. That story, published in the Summer 2022 PVM Report, was submitted for the Brian Lamb School of Communications 2023 Gold Carpet Gala Awards this past spring and won as the Best Print Article.

Now in her third year, Madeline is studying public relations and strategic communications. She rejoined the PVM Communications Team as of October 11 and will be writing stories for PVM for the remainder of the fall semester. 

Madeline also is a member of the Purdue “All-American” Marching Band, in which she serves as section leader for the mellophones, and successfully auditioned for Boiler Brass – the pep band for Purdue Men’s Basketball. Additionally, when she has some moments of free time, Madeline enjoys reading, playing piano, sipping on lattes at local coffee shops, going to the gym, and hanging out with her Chihuahua mix “Arri”, named after the former World-Series-winning pitcher for the Chicago Cubs, Jake Arrieta. As a person who is passionate about animals and the art of communication Maddie is excited to be back with the PVM Communications Team, polishing her communications skills in preparation for a fast-approaching communications career.
