Born and raised in Iowa, Molly couldn’t wait to travel and explore a real city. For undergrad, she attended Northwestern University (not quite in Chicago but close enough) where she received her BS in Biomedical Engineering with a minor in Global Health (summa cum laude, Tau Beta Pi). Molly is now a PhD Candidate in Biological Engineering at MIT. Her doctoral research focuses on identifying specific proteins that make cancer cells more sensitive to chemotherapy in order to improve treatment outcomes.
Molly has worked as a teacher and tutor in several capacities including as a teacher’s assistant for a senior project course in Biological Engineering at MIT and as a math and science tutor for the America Reads Program and Cambridge School Volunteers. At Cambridge Coaching, Molly's core strengths include Biology and Mathematics. Molly also enjoys helping students to navigate the college and graduate school admissions processes.
In her free time, Molly enjoys running along the river and walking dogs for the local animal shelter.
