Wallace is a true Garden District native.  She was born at Cabrini and grew up at 2022 Polk Street.  She moved away to Baton Rouge and New Orleans for about ten years before returning to reside in 2014 at the same home in which she was raised.  She is a third-generation Bolton alumna and attended LSU.  Today she is a wine and spirits specialist and sales representative working for Mystic Vine, the distribution side of Hokus Pokus.

She and husband Alan were married October 2015. Alan currently works in the engineering department at the City of Alexandria. They have one amazing cat named Penelope who supervises all their home renovation projects. Wallace's parents are Beth and Bobby Levy, who were long-time residents of the Garden District.  Her grandmother was even born on White street, her mother and aunt grew up on Marye street, and several members of her extended family still live in the neighborhood.

Wallace and Alan are currently in the midst of restoring their turn-of-the-century Creole Cottage room by room. They enjoy hiking, kayaking, camping, and bird-watching in nearby Kisatchie National Forest.  She also enjoys entertaining, cooking, and working on assorted craft projects.  She stays active by  exercising, especially yoga, and is a member of the Louisiana Athletic Club.

Her personal motto is "fix your own corner." She says,

"In this large, globalized, and interconnected world, it is supremely easy to feel like you as an individual don't matter and can't create any real or lasting change on the world. If you're dismayed about the state of affairs, it may seem difficult to begin, but the best and simplest place to start is within your own home and on your own street. If all of us just focus on fixing our little corners of the world, together we can create real, meaningful, and lasting change on a large scale, and my corner just happens to be in the Garden District, so what better place to start?"
