Molli is currently living in Virginia Beach. She was born in Ohio, moved to Florida at the age of four, and migrated north to Baltimore in the second grade with a full arm cast from falling out of banyan tree. She grew up in suburbia and developed a genuine affection for the O's and the Colts. She played baseball and basketball (with the boys until high school,) spent summers at Camp Wohelo, and still blames her mother for any misfortunes or failures in her life. If mom had mailed the letter she wrote to Earl Weaver at the age of eight, requesting her first job with the Baltimore Orioles, instead of selfishly tucking it away in a drawer for twenty-six years, things surely would have turned out differently. In 1987, Molli left her beloved Baltimore for college in Boston.

She spent the equivalent of a two semesters in Europe, working for the Pink Palace in Corfu, and the Satisfaction in Mykonos. Travelling through Greece, Italy, Turkey and the South of France, she picked olives in the groves with the locals (and will never eat an olive again in her life,) ventured through the streets of Rome and Florence, and covets the countless hours spent sitting at the well-worn kitchen table, talking with 'Mama', the mother of Georgios, whose frugality and tireless efforts are engraved into Molli's time-warped memory. Mama spoke not one word.of English, renamed her 'Malissa,' meaning bumblebee, and the odd pair would talk for hours-on-end without either knowing what the other was saying. The deepset wrinkles Mama proudly embraced were hard-earned accolades to her endless toil. Though purposeful efforts were made, Mama was never caught sleeping. Taking out the trash was a seldom done chore for all remnants had purpose, fed animals, fertilized her garden, and didn't come in wasteful packaging. She cooked and nurtured too many children for them to all be her natural born, but never was it mentioned or explained. She gave wisdom through action, expression, doing and teaching. Molli ' s departure brought the most beautifully forced smile accompanied by crocodile tears to Mama's face, that she has ever had the honor to witness. That moment in time, along with the know-how to making lasagna worthy of an old-world Italian grandmothers approval, are as vivid as a vision can be.

Fast-forward to present, after living in seven states up and down the East Coast, being married and unmarried, doing her best to raise her two children (fatherless, for the last seven years), and of course, still finding herself... Molli writes about work, balancing it with life, the struggles and triumphs that come-with, and the oddities that touch us along the way.
