Her philosophy and research approaches are grounded in the values of integrity, collaboration and creativity. She is passionate about designing, implementing, evaluating, and communicating research through a variety of approaches so that knowledge leads to action and learning.


Molly grew up in Dawson Creek, Northern British Columbia, where she developed a strong connection to the North and the natural world. Through her experiences travelling the world at a young age, she became passionate about the connections between 'people and place' and how this shapes different worldviews. In particular, she was interested in how stories were used to create these different lenses through which to view the world and how these have a powerful influence on well-being. She believes that good storytelling comes first from observing and listening. As a consultant, Molly's promise to her clients is to listen and learn in order to understand needs and context so that she can deliver grounded solutions that are strategic, relevant, respectful, and useful.
