OUTSIDE OF THE OFFICE

Molly grew up in the Palm Springs area of Southern California but chose to make Virginia her home after she moved here for college and fell in love with its history, landscapes, and people. One such person was her husband, Jeff, a Norfolk attorney she met during their first days of law school. They live in Smithfield and spend most of their time taking scenic drives, eating delicious food, reading good books, and watching Dodger baseball.
