A longtime mountain guide, outdoor educator and park ranger, Molly’s experience exploring remote mountain ranges around the world lends a perspective to her work that is undeniably different.
Charging grizzlies? Hiking 300 miles through leech-infested jungles? Hunting with eagles? Weaving with pygmy women? Hanging from a rope under a helicopter? Yep.
But in an unusual blend of action and introspection, Molly is just as curious and content learning about the politics of wild lands, the non-human beings that make their homes there and the culture of the human ones that do too.
An engaging storyteller and teacher, Molly works with groups of all ages and abilities hoping to connect them with the far off places she frequents, igniting curiosity, understanding and passion for the written word.
Outside * TEDx * Living on Earth * Antarctica * The Mountaineers Books * Banff Centre * National Geographic * Kyrgyzstan * National Native News * The Explorers Club * Smithsonian * Burma * The Wall Street Journal…these are snippets of what make the sum of Molly’s broad and varied experience.
Molly is currently at work on a book about medicine in the Himalaya.
