Molly is best known for her season on ABC’s “The Bachelor,” where she won the heart of the bachelor, Jason Mesnick, to whom she is now married. Born and raised in Michigan, she graduated from Grand Rapids Catholic Central High School in 2002. She was a member of the varsity basketball and golf teams, among various other clubs and organizations.
Molly continued her education, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in communication and culture at Indiana University. There, she was a member of Pi Beta Phi, Panhellenic Committee, and the IU Student Foundation. After graduating in 2006, Molly relocated to Milwaukee, Wis., where she began her retail career with Kohl’s Corporation.
A few years later, a little show called “The Bachelor” turned her life upside down. In 2008 she competed, amongst 24 other women, for the love of a man named Jason Mesnick. Molly ultimately won his heart, and they were married on Feb. 27, 2010. She now resides with Jason and his son, Ty, in Kirkland, Wash., where she has stepped away from the world of television to continue her retail career with Onlineshoes.com.
Throughout her life, Molly has not only strived for academic, athletic, and career success, but she has a passion for service to her school, church, and community through charity and service. When she’s not playing sports with Ty, cooking with Jason, or hanging “in” with her family, Molly has chosen to dedicate her free time to helping those less fortunate.
“I am so excited to share my experience in finding my soul mate,” Molly said of her partnership with Faith, Hope & Love. “Growing up with a strong Catholic background, it was important to me that I find someone who not only has great morals and values, but someone who I am proud to call my husband. Though I took an unconventional approach to find love, it is proof that God works in fascinating ways.”
