Mallorie has been working with the programs since Summer 2020, when she arrived on campus to complete her graduate school internship. The whole team was immediately impressed with her willingness to dive headfirst into work during unprecedented times, her team spirit, and her ability to connect with clients and staff alike.
“Mallorie brings experiential application, enthusiasm, insight, and a bright willingness to our programs. She was able to step into our milieu and look at things with new eyes and has the confidence to express her observations, which helps with the dynamic nature of wilderness therapy and enhances our core value to always find ways to better serve our clients. She is a great addition to Legacy and Juniper Canyon and we are excited that she has decided to stay with us and strengthen our clinical team,” says Maddy Liebing, Ph.D., Clinical Director for Legacy Treatment Center.
She earned a BS in Behavioral Neuroscience from Northeastern University in 2015, and an MSW and MS in Outdoor Education from the University of New Hampshire in 2020. She has worked as a direct care counselor at an inpatient psychiatric hospital, a community-based counselor for children and adolescents, a therapeutic adventure group facilitator, a wilderness therapy field guide, and was a therapist intern at Legacy Outdoor Adventures and Juniper Canyon Recovery Center.
Mallorie will be moving to Utah from New Hampshire. Her hobbies include hiking, running, surfing & snowboarding…. At least she can do three out of four in her new home!
