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.
