Am living my own chapter two, and thinking ahead about my chapter three. I followed my goals of obtaining an MBA in finance and securing a corporate finance position with a large, but growing company. I grew my expertise in finance as well as strategy and operations in ever-expanding roles with Eli Lilly in Indianapolis. It was exactly what I had wanted for my career, until…. a desirable job offer for my husband requiring a relocation and the birth of my first child reset my priorities. While Eli Lilly generously afforded me the opportunity to maintain my management role while telecommuting from Charlotte to Indianapolis, I ultimately elected to enjoy staying home with my children for a while.
After six years of staying home, I sought a balance that would allow me to return to the corporate and strategy roles I loved while also raising my children. A terrific local opportunity arose with a management consulting firm. Unfortunately the requirements of the role shifted within a year, requiring too much travel to meet my other priorities. I joined ChapterTwo® as Director of Client Services, leading project management and customer relations
I am active in my children’s school taking on various leadership and board roles; a member of the Mint Museum Auxiliary where I have served as treasurer; and serve my church through teaching and volunteering. Spare time is spent cooking, travelling, painting, and studying fine wines and foods.
"Over the past year we have realized that there are a lot of professionals and executives who chose to drop out of the work force to raise or care for a family, and are beginning to think about how and when to re-enter. We decided to extend our ChapterTwo® approach to serve that community, and Molly is the perfect team leader. She is applying her own experience and our proven process to guide individuals returning to work after an extended leave, augmented by the rest of our ChapterTwo® team."
