Molly lives in eastern Idaho, just a stone (or potato) throw from the Wyoming border.
Yellowstone National Park lies to the north and Grand Teton National Park to the east.
The majority of Molly’s work is fueled by the time she spends outside exploring the natural world and investigating the issues and cultures pertinent to mountain communities, including the very one she lives in.
Molly brings a unique perspective to her writing with substantial experience working for nearly two decades as a mountain guide, outdoor educator and park ranger throughout the Western United States, Antarctica and South America. She also is the recipient of several prestigious climbing and skiing grants. Her personal expeditions, many of which have included first ascents and descents, have taken her to places like Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Alaska, China, Nepal and most recently Myanmar for the first ascent of Southeast Asia’s disputed highest peak, Gamlang Razi (19,258 feet). She volunteers with Teton Rock Gym, the Alex Lowe Charitable Foundation’s Khumbu Climbing Center and as a Regional Editor for the American Alpine Club’s Accidents in North American Mountaineering.
An engaging storyteller, Molly has spoken about her endeavors for groups like The Explorers Club, The Wilderness Society, TEDx and libraries, gear stores and student groups around the country. These multi-media shows combine beautiful images with adventure and the historical, political, cultural and environmental issues which make that locale unique. Please contact Molly for your next event.
