Monte Mader: Skydiving her way to success

You won’t miss Monte Mader when she walks in the room. She’s tall, confident and projects a fierce yet friendly energy around her.

Once we get into the interview, it’s pretty clear where Monte got her fierceness from. Her tale of how she wound up in New York trying to make it as a recording artist is not one paved with rainbows and fairytales, rather it’s one of grief, loss and sheer hard work.

If there’s one lesson you can take from Monte Mader, it’s that you’re never too young to have setbacks, but that you also don’t have to wait to get older to overcome them.
