A offbeat observer, innovative educator, and screenwriter, Molly has a keen sense of story and is loved by audiences for her dynamic, humorous and unconventional take on life. Her music and mood workshops are gifted with wit, originality, and just the right degree of rattling your cage. She was recently featured in the personal development film, The Keeper Of The Keys, with Jack Canfield, Marci Shimoff and John Gray.


Her career path has followed a unique course... a teacher of special education, then a director of non-profit, followed by jumping in as a national conflict resolution education advocate with Peter Yarrow (of Peter Paul & Mary), and next a mediator for the District Attorney Office.


This altruist trend took a new twist when her research of Music and Human Behavior Patterns landed in creating TUNED-IN PRODUCTIONS. It is here she guides individuals in revealing and empowering life patterns using the likes of Motown, Mozart, Rock & Roll and the Blues! Molly’s keynotes and workshops are “changing the tune” of lives nationwide through exploring how and why music shapes our mood, health, perspective & spirit.Her stunning message will be music to your ears!
