Ms. Mary Mallia

Ms. Mary Mallia earned a BS in Chemistry and an MS in Physics at CUNY. She completed a two year Fellowship at Columbia University in 1996 and worked the following research projects:

  • “The Anomalous Behavior of Heavy Water” presented at the Science in Partnership Conference, Tucson, Arizona
  • “Behavior of Water in the Micellization of Pyrene Using Fluorescence Spectroscopy” presented at the American Chemical Society, Hofstra University, NY
  • “Pyrene Adsorption on Silica Surfaces,” presented at College of Physicians and Surgeons, Columbia University, NY

Ms. Mallia started teaching at Mater Christi High School (currently St. John’s Prep) in 1972. She taught Chemistry, Health, Environmental Chemistry, and Physical Science. 

From 1990 to 1993 she taught at St. Agnes High School in College Point where she taught Chemistry, Physical Science, and Health.

In 1993 Ms. Mallia came to Molloy to teach Earth Science and currently teaches Chemistry, Health, A.P. Chemistry, College Chemistry Honors, and Science Research Honors.

Outside of my work at Molloy I own a nutritional company, www.iamwellforlife.com . Working within the field of science, health and wellness have always held a great interest for me. I provide supplements and programs for individuals; and I train people who want their own nutritional business. My training in this field includes a Nutrition Certificate in Nutritional Counseling from Hofstra University, 2008, and certification as a Reiki Level 1 Healing Practitioner

She has also been involved in bridging the gap between the scientific and the spiritual for many years. She has taught and held meditation groups in my home. It has given me the opportunity to brainstorm with people all over the globe on topics of spirituality and personal growth.
