“Molly is a masterful storyteller and it was a joy to organizers and audience alike to have her speak at TEDxPhoenixville. Her talk, “Lessons from the Land” was an engaging, lyrical and inspirational musing on profound loss and a self reclaimed. I could have listened to her all day and been all the more rejuvenated for it!” – Kirsten Van Vlandren, TEDx

An engaging storyteller, Molly has presented, lectured, and appeared as a panelist before a wide range of groups including The Explorers Club, The Wilderness Society, TEDx, Yale University, SHIFT, and many libraries, schools, and universities. She is also happy joining a group at their dining room table keen for some local color and conversation about recreation, rescue, the Tetons, environmental studies, writing craft, or anything else that suits their fancy.

Molly’s multi-media presentation combine beautiful images, video, and audio with adventure, personal anecdotes, and the historical, political, cultural, and environmental issues unique to that locale. Molly is known for her easy-going, engaging, and playful style with presentations that provide audiences not only with a sense of adventure, but a better understanding of the varying perspectives surrounding an issue.

Molly is comfortable with and qualified to speak on a variety of health, conservation, recreation, leadership, accessibility, and writing topics. Please contact her to learn more about her latest projects.
