Mallory McMorrow, Candidate for State Senate 13th District
Mallory McMorrow is generating serious buzz in Michigan’s 13th Senate District, bringing over 10 years of experience as an industrial designer and creative director for a fresh new approach to politics. At the heart of her methods are an unwavering belief in the potential of Michigan and Michiganders and a relentless drive to find solutions through creativity and collaboration.
Throughout her career at companies including Mazda, Mattel, and Gawker Media – and now as a small business owner – Mallory has fought for more women and diverse voices to have a seat at the table and a presence in the process. Mallory was raised on giving back to the community. She started volunteering in community soup kitchens when she was 12 years old, and in college worked on projects to design refugee and disaster shelters. In Michigan, she’s been a board member for Detroit-based non-profit Write A House and co-founded The Platform Women’s Summit to create a series of events and workshops to encourage women to build small businesses.
Mallory holds a degree in Industrial Design from the University of Notre Dame. In 2017, she completed the six-month Emerge Michigan program designed to recruit and train Democratic women to run for office. If elected, she will work tirelessly for her community in Oakland County to support women, families, teachers, and push for the investments in education, water protection, and infrastructure that will drive Michigan forward.
Mallory and her husband Ray live in Royal Oak with their rescue dog, Detroit.
