LuAnn Madsen’s roots are in education and advocacy.  She received her undergraduate degrees summa cum laude from Southeast Missouri State University, and then attended law school at the University of Missouri –Columbia so she could better advocate for those whose voice would not otherwise be heard. 

While in law school, she worked with the local prosecuting attorney to help collect delinquent child support for poor mothers and their children.  She also facilitated access to the Legal Aid clinic in rural areas to meet the legal needs of the poor. 

Madsen then joined the legal staff of The Missouri Bar.   She served as Director of the Law-Related Education Program, a multi-disciplinary program designed and presented in conjunction with the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education to educate students K-12 about their legal rights and responsibilities.

While at The Missouri Bar Madsen also instituted the Mock Trial Program, which evolved into a statewide competition among high school students, coached and mentored by local attorneys in their respective communities. 

Madsen was then appointed Director of Services.   In this position she was responsible for all aspects of legislative activity at both the state and federal levels.

Madsen left The Missouri Bar to established a consulting business to represent clients before the General Assembly and Executive Branch of government.  She has worked with a variety of statewide associations and businesses, and enjoys an excellent reputation for hard work and effective representation on behalf of her clients. 

Madsen is a Past President of the Missouri Society of Association Executives, and currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Missouri Society of Governmental Consultants. 

Madsen has also been active in numerous community activities, including mentoring and working with school children of all ages.  She regularly hosts interns and students who “shadow” her during the workday, and has served as a foster parent for children in crisis.

LuAnn Madsen is a partner with her husband in the lobbying firm Madsen & Wright, Inc., and is the proud mother of two Russian born children: Alyssa and Nathan.  In her spare time she frequently choreographs musicals for community theater groups.
