Mallory went to the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville where she studied child development. She has previously been a manager in retail/customer service settings. Mallory grew up on a farm in Arkansas, so she has been surrounded by animals her entire life – from ferrets to cows! On the farm, she learned to love and care for many kinds of animals. Having experienced the loss of animals throughout her life, she strives to make others’ hard times a bit easier. Her dream is to someday bring animals into a hospital setting to visit children and help make their stay go faster.
