Madison B.

Hey there! My name is Madison Broussard and I’m a recent graduate from the University of Alabama. I’m originally from Knoxville and was an intern for Clayton Homes in summer 2016, but it was so much fun that I decided to remain a part of the team! In my spare time, I enjoy listening to music and just being outside. My second home is the lake and I like any and all water activities! I’ll eventually be a homeowner myself one day, so I enjoy learning about the home buying process and how manufactured homes are an efficient and affordable option. I’m also interested in decorating patterns and home maintenance, so be on the look out for my blog posts on these topics!
