Tha'Wann Parker Mallard ~ (President)

Tha’Wann Parker Mallard currently holds a number of titles as a program manager, author, podcaster, blogger and group fitness instructor. Prior to retaining any of these titles, the passing of her parents at a young age prompted her to quickly learn the importance of accountability. Rather than exploit life’s obstacles as an excuse to rebel, she decided to make any succeeding action an example of determination.


Her collegiate career at Ball State University began in 2002 and concluded with a Bachelor of Science in Criminology (2006), Master of Public Administration (2008), dean’s list award, presentations at Midwest CJ conference and ASOC. Ready for a change, in 2010 she decided to leave her job at the Lake County Prosecutor’s Office to pursue life on the west coast. Since then Tha’Wann has been involved with the establishment of AZ caregiver laws, innovative clinical treatment for individuals suffering from depression as well as teaching collegiate courses online as an adjunct instructor. In 2017 she co-authored her first book “Cigarettes & Bad Decisions, The S*** I Wish I’d Known”.
