Madi and Nic Smith
Building relationships and providing service to others are what Madi and Nic Smith enjoy most about Alpine Academy.
Nic’s previous work experience as a Special Education jr. high math teacher and as a high school football coach helped prepare him for his role as a Family Teacher. He has always gravitated towards young people and loves helping them build their self-esteem and push them to finding their true potential and happiness in life. Nic loves fishing, athletics, and anything in the mountains. He shares his love for these these pasttimes with the students in his home in hopes that they too can find peace and enjoyment in the outdoors.
Madi loves everything health and beauty-related. She has been in customer service and technical support positions over the years and is a licensed aesthetician. These experiences, along with the time she spent as a service volunteer in Guatemala, has helped her strengthen her skills as an empathetic listener. She is very open and loving to the people she is surrounded by. Madi loves getting to know the youth who come into their home and enjoys building relationships with them. She loves learning and is happy with the many opportunities she has to do so in this position. Like Nic, Madi enjoys outdoor activities such as camping and fishing and loves spending time with the students in her home.
