||My Why – Mallory Rossi, Physical Therapist
District 21’s physical therapist Mallory Rossi talks fast, walks fast and moves fast. She also has a “no excuses” attitude. So when she tore her ACL as a junior basketball player at St. Viator H.S. and spent nine months in physical therapy, it slowed… her… down…which she didn’t like. But what she discovered was that she loved doing PT; she loved the people and was inspired to help others in the same way.
My Why – Meagan Novara, Restorative Practice Coach
As an Italian woman who loves to cook, one of Meagan Novara’s favorite things to do is have a big, crowded house with lots of people eating good food. Large gatherings are not a problem for Meagan as she is a Restorative Practice Coach for District 21 and trained on strengthening relationships and building positive cultures. She truly enjoys the work, but it wasn’t always on her career path. In fact, after graduating from Michigan State University, she started her career working at a prominent ad agency in Chicago doing media buys – a job in which she didn’t have a strong passion.
