About Tina Hallock

Headshot of Tina Hallock

Tina Hallock grew up in Hadley, Massachusetts, and earned a bachelor's degree in elementary education from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst in 1991. She and Kevin have been married for 30 years and have two children, ages 27 and 23. Early in her career, she worked as an elementary school teacher and then transitioned to motherhood. While raising two children, she worked part-time in human resources and for an international weight loss corporation.

Through raising a child with mental health struggles, she found her passion to give back and worked, most recently, in upstate New York for a local nonprofit as a School-Based Family Navigator, working to enhance family-school partnerships. She worked closely with the Systems of Care collaborative in two counties, and was on the steering committee of a local Suicide Prevention Coalition. 

She is passionate about initiatives to strengthen families, foster belonging, and promote resilience. To broaden her impact on these issues, she recently co-created a podcast, “No Need to Explain with the Mental Health Mamas,” with a colleague and friend, aimed at normalizing the conversation around parenting and mental health.

She enjoys the sunshine, gardening, walking, reading, and spending time with Kevin, their dogs Matilda and Mabel, their family, and friends.
