Molly lives in Leland with her husband, Bret, and their three children and their dog. Molly and her family moved from Chicago to the area in 2004 and for many years prior to that spent almost every vacation and holiday coming to Leelanau. Her husband, Bret, owns and runs the Blue Moon Ice Cream shop in Cedar. Molly has previously worked for the Leelanau Historical Society as well as serving as a member of its board of directors. She spent many years as a volunteer and board member of the Leland Educational Foundation. Before joining our staff Molly was the owner of The Leland Toy Company for 8 years. Her favorite place to hike is right out her back door on the Whaleback Natural Area!
