Molly is a North Carolina native, born and raised in Salisbury, NC — home to Food Lion and Cheerwine. Molly got her BS in Public Health Studies and her Master of Public Health degree from ECU. She now enjoys teaching health policy for the department, along with working as a project coordinator for a cancer medication adherence study that is funded by MERCK. Molly serves as an ECU faculty advisor for Eta Sigma Gamma, National Health Honorary, and is qualified to facilitate a number of NC School Health Trainings. Her passions in the field include LGBT health, sexual health, women’s health, adolescent health, cancer education and prevention, and health literacy.

In her free time, Molly enjoys being active in adult sport leagues (kickball and volleyball), outdoor activities and acrylic painting. She has been displayed as the “featured artist of the month” at a local brewery and plans to display more artwork in Eastern NC. Through these outlets, Molly is able to connect to the community outside of her profession, while utilizing some of her talents. Go Pirates!
