Episode 71: Madison Alexander— “You Have To Respect Yourself!”

Madison is an experienced car painter who owns her own shop in Nashville, Tennessee. Her passion for cars started as a child while she watched her father and grandfather paint and work on cars “under a shaded tree”. Madison also raced cars as a preteen and then pursued her passion further in high school by enrolling in automotive tech classes. Supported by her teacher and her family, Madison joined several national competitions and became the first female to win the SkillsUSA Automotive and Refinish Technology Division in the state of Tennessee. As her work experience grew, so did her accomplishments—in 2018, Madison’s work on a ’36 Pontiac landed her a place in the Great 8 category at the Detroit Autorama. She also painted the Chevy Montage for the All Females Build displayed at SEMA in 2019. Don’t miss this episode so you can hear all about Madison’s journey and how she kept an open mind and “soaked everything up like a sponge” so she could follow her passion!
