Dr. Mallinger is generally our co-host at the Beer Garden. But, though she helped organize it this year, she will not be in attendance due to the Festival falling on a high holiday in the Jewish faith. She nonetheless has remained behind the scenes helping to organize the event as a member of the Board of Directors.

By day Dr. Mallinger is an associate professor in the WKU Social Work department.

Gayle also serves as President of Hope Harbor and has served as a Board member for the Community Farmer’s Market.
