About Mallory


Bio

Hi, everybody! I'm Mallory. I have a Bachelor's degree in English and a Master's degree in GIST (Geographic Information Science and Technology, or a fancy way of saying "mapping" or "spatial analysis"). It might sound like a funny combination (English and maps?), but I love to tell stories through maps and visual interactive media. As a former journalist, storytelling is also a great passion of mine. I learned through my career (both as a student and a teacher) that creativity and science can...

Hi, everybody! I'm Mallory. I have a Bachelor's degree in English and a Master's degree in GIST (Geographic Information Science and Technology, or a fancy way of saying "mapping" or "spatial analysis"). It might sound like a funny combination (English and maps?), but I love to tell stories through maps and visual interactive media. As a former journalist, storytelling is also a great passion of mine. I learned through my career (both as a student and a teacher) that creativity and science can often work well together.

As a college-level instructor, my approach to teaching (both individually and in a small classroom setting) has been to champion the unique goals, aspirations, and learning styles of students through interactive and engaging lessons. My favorite part of teaching and tutoring is when a student is inspired by the subject matter and begins to forge their own path, and in this process, I end up learning from them. I have a deep appreciation for many of my teachers throughout the years (all the way back to the 3rd grade!), and the common denominator for all of them has been how much they cared about seeing me succeed, even staying late for hours after school to help me if needed. This is how I strive to see students I teach/tutor succeed as well. I was told at an early age that my learning disabilities would make my education a particularly challenging one, and had it not been for these teachers, it would have been far more difficult and easier to give up. I encourage those with learning disabilities to reach out to me if either of these subjects apply to you.

First off, I love to write. Ever since I was little, I wanted to be a writer and have found that while some writers have natural talent for the written word, the greatest writers must work for it. I worked in Journalism for over three years and have written editorials, columns, music/concert reviews, given interviews, and other various assignments. I was also an assistant editor for an entertainment website in Los Angeles, and am one of the t

GIS

In 2011 I worked as GIS Administrator and Instructor at Mount St. Mary's University in Los Angeles, CA, where I assisted in the implementation and development of the GIS Minor program. In 2015, I received my M.S. in GIST (Geographic Information Science and Technology) from the University of California, and was recognized for my thesis work with an environmental justice organization. My Master's thesis, "Spatial Narratives of Struggle and Activism in the Del Amo and Montrose Superfund Cleanups: A Community-Engaged Web GIS Story Map" received USC's thesis prize and has been cited in peer-reviewed papers and other student theses. I have worked most recently as a GIS consultant for local government and environmental remediation firms, and a GIS Planner for a local transit agency.
