I love playing soccer, traveling to new places, finding new music, and talking about Myers-Briggs Types. As an ENFP, I really enjoy meeting new people and learning about their stories.

Madeline Bookout

Consultant Since 2018

Howdy! My name is Madeline Bookout, and I am a junior Marketing major and New Media Art minor here at A&M. My hometown is a suburb of Dallas called Coppell, and I am one of six kids in my fun, crazy family. I decided to join the Comm Lab team because I wanted to serve my peers in Mays by helping them develop their professional voice while simultaneously learning from them.  I spend my small amount of spare time reading, creating graphic designs, developing my photography skills, and playing strategy board games. My favorite place to travel to is Colorado because I adore the mountains and skiing. The next two adventures I plan to take are visiting Yosemite and Yellowstone. I look forward to seeing you all in the Comm Lab!

I also have a huge passion for Spanish: I have a Spanish minor and spent my spring semester in Madrid, Spain, working on the language.  I am a part of the Comm Lab not only because I love language in all shapes and forms, but also because I love investing in others and seeing the way they can realize their potential over time. I look forward to working with you!
