Mallie manages recruitment, admissions and operations at TFAS, shepherding prospective students through the process of becoming TFAS all-stars. She enjoys the beginning of each program because she has the opportunity to meet in person the students she has emailed and called all year.
Mallie graduated from the University of Alabama in 2012 with a bachelor’s degree in public relations with a minor in entrepreneurship. During her time at Alabama, she was a member of the Kappa Delta sorority and, through that group, participated in many community service projects benefiting the Girl Scouts of America, such as races, fundraisers, events and Halloween parties held at the sorority house. Her sorority also organized fundraisers to benefit the nonprofit Prevent Child Abuse America.
After graduation, Mallie moved to Charleston, South Carolina, where she worked for an interior and event design firm. She moved to Washington, D.C. to intern in the office of Senator Marco Rubio of Florida. She later interned for The Heritage Foundation’s Young Leaders Program, learning to manage outreach, applications and mailings and organize information sessions with internal and external participants. She chose TFAS as her next workplace because she could use the skills she had developed through The Heritage Foundation and her community service experiences.
Mallie is originally from Pensacola, Florida. In her free time, she enjoys cheering on the Crimson Tide, spending time outdoors with her family and friends, going to the beach and traveling. A trip to Spain is high on her bucket list. For others who like to travel, she highly recommends her hometown beach, Pensacola Beach, for its clear blue water, good restaurants and quaint atmosphere.
