Molly grew up in New England and attended the University of Vermont in Burlington for her undergraduate education. Although her studies were concentrated in psychology, it was the classes she took in herbology that would be the catalyst in her path as a healer. She received her B.A. in Psychology in the spring of 2005.
Molly spent the next several years working, traveling and volunteering in the U.S. and other parts of the world. She accredits the people she encountered on her journeys to have taught her an enormous amount about humility and compassion, giving her a broader human understanding. Most notable of Molly's travel experiences was the year she taught English in Shenzhen, China. The experience gave rise to a deeper curiosity about the culture, language and medicine practiced there.
Her fascination with herbs and Chinese medicine lead Molly to enroll in Chinese medicine school. She began her masters program at the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Denver in the summer of 2013. She worked in the student clinic as a student practitioner throughout her studies and interned in the office of Daisy Dong, a 30-year practitioner, over the course of 2014. She graduated from CSTCM in the spring of 2015 with her Masters of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine. She is a licensed acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist in the state of Colorado. She is involved in the Durango Acupuncture Alliance which is a community of local, nationally certified acupuncturists who offer a free clinic to Veterans. Molly is a member of the Acupuncture Association of Colorado and the American Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.
Molly works extensively with Chinese herbal medicine in conjunction with acupuncture as an integral part of her individualized care of patients. She has found herbal medicine, when appropriate, to be critical to the expedited recovery in cases of chronic headaches, chronic digestive complaints, multiple sclerosis, menstruation issues, sleep problems and for post chemo-therapy nourishment. Molly also utilizes cupping, gua sha, tui na (Chinese massage) and moxibustion.
Molly has found her home in the beautiful mountains of Durango, Colorado. She spends her leisure time hiking, biking, skiing and otherwise enjoying the stunning place where she lives.
