Job Coach/Retail Associate

Molly is a graduate from the University of Georgia (Go Dawgs!) with a degree in Special Education. After teaching for a few years, Molly was ready for a change but still desired to work with people with disabilities. SmART! was the perfect fit for her, allowing her to work with our employees and get more in touch with her crafty side.

Molly enjoys crocheting, cross-stitching/embroidery and has been inspired to dabble more in sewing since working at SmART! She also enjoys spending time outside with her husband and dogs, reading and doing puzzles.
