She serves as a key ambassador of MASS culture code, supporting leadership and ensuring MASS project teams are working to their fullest potential. Shaped by her experiences teaching English in South Korea, public health work in Ecuador and women’s health and population field studies in Jerusalem, Molly became passionate about cross-cultural immersion and experiential education.
