About Us


Mallory Even Bio

Mallory Even is a licensed and board-certified music therapist, and earned her Bachelor’s degree in Music Therapy from the Florida State University. Upon moving to Atlanta, GA, Mallory worked as a music therapist in an adult and geriatric inpatient psychiatric unit and then opened her own business which served the metro Atlanta area and global communities through in-person and online services for over fifteen years.


In December 2020, Mallory graduated from the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Program, a select group of small business owners from across the United States who were invited into the highly competitive program on a full-scholarship. This program focused on leadership, competitive strategy, marketing and operations management, human resource management, accounting, and finance, with instruction from top academics and proven business leaders to better enhance business performance.


When Third Ladder came to life in 2021, Mallory was honored to bring her therapeutic background and business experience to Third Ladder as President of the Board. Mallory served in that role for the first two years of the organization’s existence and upon rolling off the board in the spring of 2023, Mallory joined the team as Director of Operations in the summer of 2023. After onboarding, she and her team opened, Aria Music Therapy, a therapeutic division of Third Ladder, which exists to come alongside clients and their loved ones while they are grieving, hurting and struggling, and to bring music, air, and life to an Aria that is theirs.


Mallory is thrilled to once again be a member of the Third Ladder board, this time bringing with her the insight and experience of an employee of the organization.


Mallory leads worship at her church, volunteers her time to the PTA, her children’s swim team, co-leads her daughter’s Girl Scout troop, and serves on the board of Music Therapy of the Rockies, a non-profit who leads Songwriting Retreats for Veterans and others with PTSD. Mallory loves her people deeply, and when not working or volunteering, you will find her making music, going to the movies, and spending time with her husband and their twins, with extended family, and with friends who have become family.
