Mallory is a Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) and is fully licensed.
She earned her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. Due to her broad interests, she studied the liberal arts, and she graduated with high honors. At college, she was invited to membership in the Golden Key National Honor Society, National Scholars Honor Society and Eta Phi Alpha Honors Fraternity. Mallory paid for her college tuition and living costs by working many hours at a retail clothing store.
Mallory’s wisdom comes from more than formal study and professional experience. Raised by a single father, Mallory was devastated to find out in her mid-20s that he had terminal cancer. Mallory moved home to look after her father and younger sister. She coordinated with hospice, assisted with his care and was with him as he passed. After she and her siblings coordinated his funeral, she remained at home for several more months to support her sister.
A few years later, her grandmother required nursing home care. Again, the family turned to Mallory. She became the main point of contact with the nursing home, organizing her grandmother’s financial matters and making sure she was comfortable until her passing. Mallory credits these experiences for giving her strength, perspective and compassion.
Mallory and her husband, Hank, welcomed their first child, Henry, in February 2020, and their second child, Ellie, in August 2022.
She is a wine enthusiast who has toured vineyards in France’s Loire Valley and Champagne region. She also enjoys “the little things” in life, like a strong cup of coffee and spending quiet nights at home with her family and their yellow lab, Penny.
