Mallorie was a bright light shining anywhere she went. Beautiful inside and out. She had a contagious laugh and smile that would fill a room as well as your heart. A true friend to everyone she met especially her animals. Mallorie was a vet tech at Eastern Carolina Veterinary Emergency Hospital where she truly loved her job. She was able to bring her beloved dog Chester to work with her which made everyone’s day brighter.

Mallorie would want you to do something that makes someone happy, create something that inspires someone, and to always be someone’s light when the are hopeless.
