Before joining Aviation Week, Molly spent nearly 20 years at the Wichita Eagle, Kansas’ largest newspaper, where she served as senior aviation/aerospace reporter.

Along the way, she has had some unique experiences, including a ride with the U.S.A.F. Thunderbirds Demonstration Team, a parachute jump with the U.S. Army Golden Knights demonstration team and a ride in the back of an Air Force tanker watching a boom operator fuel a fighter jet. Her reporting has taken her across the world. Molly became a private pilot in 2011.

She has won multiple state and national journalism awards, including awards from the Society of Business Editors and Writers, Heart of America and the Kansas Press Association. She was the recipient of the 2013 National Business Aviation Association’s Gold Wing Award for Journalism Excellence and was featured in a book on Kansas called Ad Astra: 161 Adventurers, Astronauts, Discoverers, Explorers, Pilots, Pioneers and Scientists.

A graduate of Wichita State University, Molly was selected the 2014 Outstanding Alumni at WSU’s Elliott School of Communication.
