Molly has been practicing in her hometown of Galesburg since 2003. She attended Western Illinois University, obtaining a Bachelor of Business degree in Accountancy and became a Certified Public Accountant. She studied law at Valparaiso University in Indiana and began her legal career at a small firm in Northwest Indiana. After she and her husband started a family, they wisely came back to Galesburg to raise their four children. Molly’s practice areas are estate planning and estate administration.

Molly enjoys working for clients with whom she’s had long-term, community-based relationships. When not practicing law, she has volunteered in many local groups supporting K-12 education, youth sports, theater, and the Lutheran Church.
