While at the University of Chicago, Mallory took an interdisciplinary approach to studying migration. Beyond her coursework, she interned at a Chicago-based nonprofit that provides mental health services to asylum-seekers. Working with clients from around the globe, she used her French language skills to communicate clients’ needs to the clinical team. In addition, Mallory spent a summer working at a health-focused company in the Netherlands where she further deepened her understanding of biopsychosocial approaches to health. Currently, she teaches fourth grade at an independent school where she designs social studies lessons that integrate global perspectives. Outside the classroom, she loves coaching middle school cross country and leading the lower school book club. In the fall, she plans to attend a Master of Social Work program.
