Mallory Busch

Audience Engagement Manager

A graduate of Northwestern University, Mallory came to ThinkCERCA from stops in audience strategy at TIME magazine and news applications development at Chicago Tribune and The Texas Tribune. She holds degrees in Journalism and International Studies, and was a student fellow at Knight Lab in college.

Mallory codes, writes, and works on marketing strategy. She built ThinkCERCA’s classroom planning tool and lends her journalism experience to writing each #CERCAtheNews. She believes that web development and audience development go hand-in-hand, and her most cumbersome challenge is learning to reuse the Oxford Comma.

What would your last meal be? Deep-dish pizza. I’d have to say that melted cheese is my favorite food group.

Favorite quote? “Do not pity the dead. Pity the living. And above all pity those who live without love.” –From my man, Dumbledore.
