Mallory grew up in Birmingham, Alabama, spending all of her college summers working for a local youth ministry. After graduating from Auburn University with a degree in musical theatre, Mal worked as a professional actor on various tours around the country before settling in New York City to do equally wonderful and low-budget Shakespeare workshops for high school students. While in NYC, Mal landed a day job at Redeemer Presbyterian Church working with community groups and the kids’ ministry. Since moving to Nashville in 2014, Mallory has led and coached large kids’-ministry teams. Mal dreams of seeing kiddos come to know that they are truly needed and that they deeply belong in the local church and in God’s kingdom. She enjoys new hobbies, cheering on the Auburn Tigers, cooking/eating brunch, and spending quality time with friends and family while attempting to finish a master of arts in ministry from Western Theological Seminary. Mallory lives in Nashville with her dog, Rosie.
