Ms. Mallach has received numerous medals, including the Bronze Star, in recognition of her excellent service.

She is a graduate of Columbia High School in Maplewood, New Jersey, and Union College in New York.  Currently living in Saranac Lake with her 10 year old daughter, Cayla, Ms. Mallach’s presentation will include her experiences being a mother while doing military service.
