Recently named by the Billings Gazette as a “Forty Under Forty” community leader, Molly has nearly a decade of experience in public policy, issue advocacy, and electoral campaigning and has unmatched relationships with leaders on both the state and national level.

 Experience:

  • In 2012, Molly served as a key strategist to independent groups that mobilized in Montana to re-elect U.S. Senator Jon Tester. Working with this diverse coalition that included choice advocates, organized labor, and conservationists, Molly also played a significant role in electing Steve Bullock to the Governor’s mansion.
  • Molly was the campaign manager for the successful referendum to pass a $16M library bond in the city of Billings in 2011. When most cities were cutting public services, Molly and her team of volunteers convinced Billings voters to raise their own taxes and boosted turnout 21 points.
  • In 2008, Molly was a grassroots organizer for the Healthy Montana Kids ballot initiative campaign to dramatically expand children’s healthcare in Montana. The initiative passed with 70 percent of the vote.
  • Molly conducted policy research for both the U.S. Senate Finance Committee and the Canadian Parliament.

Molly’s education includes a Bachelors of Arts degree in Political Science and Philosophy from Furman University and a master’s in Philosophy and Public Policy from the London School of Economics.
