Board Chair is Woman on the Move

Michele Malloy - Photo by Barfield PhotographyMichele Malloy, chair of the University of St. Thomas Board of Directors, is one of 10 women  recently named by Texas Executive Women to the class of 2013 of Women on the Move. Texas Executive Women was founded in 1979 and mentors at-risk high school girls in the Houston metropolitan area.

“Wonderful women are nominated each year, and I was very touched by being one of those chosen for this award,” Malloy said.

Malloy has served on the UST Board of Directors for 11 years, three of those as chair. With many students as the first in their families to graduate college, Malloy said it has been a joy to serve the students.

Malloy’s other volunteer activities include serving on the Houston Grand Opera Board of Trustees, the Cullen Trust for Higher Education, working as a volunteer patient advocate at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center and for the Catholic chaplain corps at St. Luke’s Hospital. She is active in her parish and two Catholic orders, the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre and the Order of Malta.

Malloy has practiced law in Houston since 1977, working as an attorney and an executive for Conoco, Tenneco, Inc. and Marathon Oil Co. Malloy went into private practice so she could provide estate planning advice and wills to those in need, regardless of their ability to pay. She practices estate planning, probate and business law with Fishman Jackson Stewart Wiley in The Woodlands.

“What I’ve learned in life is that service is joy,” Malloy said. “I agree with the motto of Frances Hesselbein: ‘To serve is to live.’ Listen to where you’re called to serve, because you will be.”
