Mallary is Managing Director of Images & Voices of Hope (ivoh). She believes the media can play a powerful role in connecting communities, restoring hope, and giving people a reason to care about issues in today’s society.
Given how much the public distrusts the media, there’s a growing need to highlight what’s working rather than focusing on what’s broken. As managing director, Mallary looks for stories, photographs, art, film and more that captures how the media can be a force for good. As managing director, she runs ivoh’s website, oversees planning for ivoh’s annual media summit, develops strategic partnerships, fundraises and more.
Prior to joining ivoh, Mallary was managing editor of The Poynter Institute’s media news site, Poynter.org. She remains an adjunct faculty member at the institute and teaches sessions on social media. In 2013, she was named one of the top 50 female innovators in digital journalism. In 2012, she was featured on a list of the top 100 Twitter accounts every journalism student should follow and was named a Mirror Award finalist for outstanding media reporting.
Mallary grew up outside of Boston and graduated from Providence College in Rhode Island. She now resides in St. Petersburg, FL. and is currently writing a memoir.
