Office hours

Schedule an appointment to meet with Mallory here.

Mallory helps students to discover their gifts and be brave enough to share them with the world. She knows what it’s like to have a lot of interests, but still feel lost when it comes to pursuing a career. After exploring a few college majors and saying “Yes” to new experiences, she landed the best job in the world - helping you to discover who you were meant to become. She is currently working with students interested in: business, communication, STEM, and healthcare industries. In her spare time, Mallory enjoys writing, reading, traveling, and her two dogs, Sheldon and Sophie.
