Focus Areas

Molly founded Golden Age Leadership in 2016 in Wilmington, NC while also serving as the HR Director of Employee Leadership, Learning and Engagement at UNC Wilmington. During the most difficult of ages, she believes gold can always be found if we make the time to define what we want the gold to be. Gold doesn’t always come as dollars and it doesn’t always make sense but living life on purpose and taking action towards those dreams leads to increased satisfaction, and confidence that equates to just that… PURE GOLD! For the past 20 years, Molly has made an impact facilitating leadership, learning & engagement programs and coaching individuals and teams in K-12 and university settings.

A few of her most popular areas of focus are:

  • Transitioning from student to working professionals—see Imperfectly Balanced & Adulting in the Workplace classes

  • Setting & achieving goals—see Art of One Word class  

  • Resume & cover letter writing, interview prep & salary/benefit negotiation—see Career Development class 

  • Exploring careers and strengths and learning from those doing what you are doing.

Not only is Molly one of the best life coaches, but she is the most positive person I have ever met in my life! Every time we met, she used her great energy to help whatever I was going through. She helped me with big life and college decisions by walking me through a life map, which I still use to this day! We also chose our one words together; what's great about this is she really breaks down what it is you want to focus on for the new year. I was choosing between 2 words but found my one word because she helped me analyze my goals. Molly is a great listener, and I couldn't have asked for a better person to help me through some of the toughest times. She is the most passionate and loving person who just wants to help. I am forever grateful for her!
