Maddy Plaster

Account Director

A Chicago girl born and bred, Maddy has always been passionate about good food and helping others. After countless years obsessing over the Food Network and hosting her own “cooking shows” from her family’s kitchen counter, Maddy headed to Ohio University’s Scripps School of Journalism to study Strategic Communications and later founded her campus’ chapter of Spoon University, a national foodie publication made for and by college students. With a variety of PR internships under her belt, Maddy moved to New York City after college for a position at a luxury real estate and hospitality PR firm. Working with clients like the World’s 50 Best Restaurants and supporting their awards ceremony in Bilbao, Spain, Maddy’s dreams of working in the restaurant world continued to grow. With this passion in mind, Maddy joined the team at a NYC-based lifestyle agency, where she spent two years spearheading hotel and restaurant openings, F&B product launches, and cross-promotional partnerships for her clients. She later took her beverage expertise to a wine & spirits-focused agency, where she worked with several award-winning alcohol brands, before making the move to Nashville in August 2021 to join the Sprouthouse team. When she is not working, you can find her binging reality TV (Real Housewives fans, where you at?!), planning her next travel adventure, or exploring the neighborhoods of Music City.
