  • Molly developed her love of food in her mother's and grandmother's kitchens and later by working in the restaurant industry and interviewing chefs and covering restaurants all over the southeastern United States.
  • She is her family's go-to expert for planning and executing holiday meals.
  • She has a multi-bookshelf collection of cookbooks, which she's currently cooking and baking her way through.


Molly began her post-college career as the managing editor of St. Augustine Social magazine in St. Augustine, FL, where she wrote about the lifestyle and vibrant culinary culture of the region. After a brief career as an English teacher, she spent several years with the US Federal Government as an editor of foreign policy analysis but never missed an opportunity to take advantage of the DC area's diverse cuisine. Now, though, Molly has returned to her Southern roots and works as a city editor for AVLtoday in Asheville, NC, where the award-winning food scene never disappoints and always provides fodder for her written work.


Molly holds bachelor's degrees in English and Philosophy/Religion from Flagler College in St. Augustine, FL. She has her master's degree in Liberal Arts from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD.
