Malley joined Hillside Montessori of Lagrange in 2019 as an adolescent guide. Malley was born in Muscle Shoals, Alabama and moved to Destin, Florida at a very young age and spent her childhood and adolescence there. She relocated to Georgia in 2006 and graduated from Flint River Academy. Malley then studied business at Clayton State University before starting her own successful photography business here in LaGrange.

Her love for Montessori began when her son, Wyatt, started the program at First Presbyterian Montessori Preschool with Mrs. Pat Headrick. The loving, nurturing environment she provided was everything she had been looking for in a non-traditional education for her son. Malley is so grateful to be a part of the growth of the adolescent program and the Hillside community as a whole. Her favorite part of being an adolescent guide is watching the students discover themselves and who they are as social humans. Observing their growing connection with the world around them is exceedingly rewarding.
