As a senior coordinator of student assistance programming, Mallory Henry oversees the educational services Caron provides to schools, educators, students, and families in Pennsylvania, which include prevention and substance use education.
In her role, she sets goals and strategies for the department and defines the actions needed to put them into practice. Mallory supervises approximately 30 specialists who provide education in schools and other youth-serving organizations. She is also a Pennsylvania-approved Student Assistance Program training provider.
She came to Caron in 2012 to work in the Student Assistance Programming Department, starting out in direct service providing education in schools, then becoming a lead specialist and a coordinator after that, before taking on her current position in 2020. Her degree in secondary education and experience in the behavioral health field have equipped her to take on the challenges and possibilities the job offers.
My understanding of how the school system works in Pennsylvania and of behavioral health allows me to see how they intertwine. In terms of background, this job suits everything I liked about my past experience. I love that it’s different every day and allows me to meet and work with all kinds of people. Those relationships build my ability to provide resources to students and schools that are really needed.”
Mallory is a certified prevention specialist and has a bachelor’s degree in secondary education from Penn State.
