As Director of Land Conservation, Mollie (she/her/hers) oversees the management and ongoing protection of the over 21,000 acres of land the Club has conserved, spearheads the effort to conserve the last few remaining miles of trail as opportunities arise, and assists in the management of GMC’s rental cabins.
Mollie grew up in Ithaca, New York, and came to Vermont to earn a BS from the Rubenstein School at the University of Vermont in environmental studies with a minor in plant biology. She joined GMC in 2016 after working with a number of conservation organizations throughout Vermont, including the Vermont Chapter of The Nature Conservancy and UVM Extension. Mollie completed a section hike of the Long Trail in 2019 and is picking away at a side-to-side with her husband, Jacob. When not hiking on the Long Trail System, Mollie can be found restoring her 1870s home in Burlington, growing peaches, skiing, biking and canoeing.
