Mallory Wyckoff (DMin, MTS) lives in Nashville, TN with her husband, Tim, and daughter, Olive. A Clearwater, Florida native, she moved to Tennesee for college and studied journalism at Lee University. She came to Nashville for her graduate and doctoral work in theology, and has remained in Music City despite her general dislike of country music and Southern food.
Mallory spent the majority of her career working with a ministry for young women who survived various forms of abuse and trauma. This work inspired her doctoral research project entitled “The Impact of Sexual Trauma on Survivors’ Theological Perception and Spiritual Formation.” Mallory is a writer, teacher, preacher, and spiritual director. In addition to her work in spiritual direction, she teaches in the Bible departments of Lipscomb University and Rochester College, and serves to support DMin students in their dissertation work. No matter the form her work takes, Mallory is most passionate about creating safe spaces where individuals can explore more richly and fully the mystery of God and who they are as image-bearers.
Her fundamental conviction is that human dignity is the answer to every question, and her perfect day includes seeing the (forthcoming) NSYNC reunion tour concert.
