Maddie Dunlap

MSL Student, Class of 2018
Account Executive, West Coast Advisors
Year Graduated: 2018

Undergraduate: Cal Poly San Luis Obispo
Major: Agricultural Communication

Maddie Dunlop is a California native who attended California Polytechnic State University San Luis Obispo as an undergraduate, majoring in Agricultural Communication. Maddie's hometown had an enormous impact on her educational and professional background. She affirms, "I grew up in a small agricultural town in Northern California on my family's cattle ranch. My graduating class was only 30 students and our town had only one blinking red light. My upbringing gave me a passion for agricultural policy and law. It inspired both my agricultural studies and my career path."

Maddie currently works as an Account Executive for West Coast Advisors. Though she is already a registered lobbyist and public affairs professional who works on California water issues, Maddie was looking for more legal education and training to bolster her career.

When asked why she chose McGeorge over other schools in the area, she replied, "McGeorge's excellent reputation around Sacramento and in the Water Law community drew me to the M.S.L. program."  

After Maddie graduates from the MSL program, she intends to continue working as a lobbyist, specifically on water and agricultural issues. She notes, "It's a very exciting time in water policy in California, and I'm looking forward to utilizing the skills and knowledge I've gained from McGeorge."
