While in high school and in college she worked in and around hospitals and nursing homes. She volunteered with children with developmental disabilities and was a Guardian Advocate for Family Eldercare in Austin, Texas. Malorie was also selected to participate in The Michael E. DeBakey Summer Surgery Program and was paired up with a surgeon at Baylor College of Medicine to shadow in the operating room, clinics, and conferences for the duration of the program.
Malorie attended St. Edwards University where she graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in psychology. Malorie then turned her path to public health and pursued classes at the University of Texas School of Public Health while attending the University of Houston Law Center with a focus on health law. It was at that time her legal career began to blossom. Between 1999 and 2002, she interned for the Associate General Counsel at Baylor College of Medicine with a focus on compliance issues, and was also a Graduate Research Assistant at the University of Texas School of Public Health in various areas, including healthcare utilization trends, comparative health policy, health system reform, and comparison of the performance of for-profit and non-profit healthcare entities. Malorie graduated from the University of Houston Law Center in 2002.
