Molly is a board certified Family Nurse Practitioner by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, with experience in family medicine, psychiatry, women’s health, and hormone therapy. She attended Texas Woman’s University where she obtained both her nursing degree and her masters degree in science.

As a nurse, Molly worked in the prestigious Intensive Care Unit at the University of Texas Southwestern Hospital in Dallas. This is where her passion to prevent disease instead of managing disease was born.  Molly’s scope of practice enables her to provide a variety of medical services including helping women reach their optimum weight, regaining hormonal balance, as well as diagnosing and managing acute and chronic disease.

“My personal philosophy as a nurse practitioner revolves around providing patient centered care, compassion, overall wellness, and the pursuit of knowledge.”
