"Mallory brings subject matter expertise and an intangible joy with her audience picks up on-- even virtually. She speaks about ableism and discrimination in a way that propels her audience to action.
Mallory speaks to students candidly and kindly. She shares her own struggles and successes. In doing so, she normalizes the often-tumultuous path life takes us on before landing our “dream job” and debunks the “linear” route to success along the way. If you are thinking about welcoming Mallory to your classroom, place of employment, organization, or network, I highly suggest you take it because she is extraordinary."
- Assistant Professor, Stonehill College

"Mallory’s personality, charm, wit, and wisdom shined through to our classroom. The class truly benefited from hearing about Mallory’s lived experience and gained an appreciation for how various systems—everything from transportation to the healthcare system—can significantly impact the lives of people with disabilities.
Engaging, thoughtful, funny, and hopeful is what I would describe Mallory as. It was a pleasure learning from her."
