Maddie Rombough, Minister of Spiritual Formation

A Tulane junior, Maddie studies Psychology and Gender & Sexuality Studies. She is responsible for developing and maintaining NOLA Wesley’s presence with the students and staff of Loyola and Tulane. “Cute” is Maddie’s favorite word, and she uses it generously, as if the word has 36 different definitions. Have you ever seen NOLA Wesley tablers handing out buttermilk drops, freshly made Yerba Mate tea, candy, and notes of kindness under Stern? Chances are, Maddie was there, so stop by and say hi next time!
