About Me



Hello! Thank you for stopping by Modern Mollie. My name is Mollie and I'm so glad you're here!

If you're curious, here is a little bit more about me:

Where are you originally from? I grew up in California, in the Bay Area.

Where did you go to college? I went to Cal Poly SLO for undergrad and NYU for grad school.

Where are you based now? Currently I live in Jersey City, NJ. We moved here in September from the Upper East Side in New York City.

Why did you create Modern Mollie? I created Modern Mollie as a creative outlet. I wanted a space for my favorite things in life: beauty, style, and travel; I wanted something that was totally separate from and different than my full time job at the time. My blog has grown since I moved to New York City--I've gotten the chance to work with brands, attend events, and make some amazing friends. I also create content on YouTube and have a passion for making videos--I originally started with videos. I'm proud that my work has grown into a small business and I hope to continue to grow Modern Mollie!

When did you get married? Joe and I got married on June 24, 2017. Our wedding was in California, near where we met in San Luis Obispo (we met in college). I did a whole wedding series on the blog & YouTube.

When did you adopt Nutmeg? Joe and I adopted Nutmeg in February 2016. We adopted her from an organization called City Critters in Soho. She is seriously the light of both of our lives. She even has an Instagram account!

What is next for you? Recently, I've revamped my content--I've changed the focus of my blog from New York City lifestyle themed to life & style with an emphasis on body positive/mental health-related posts and business posts[blogging and career advice]. I want my content to really help out others who may face the same struggles I have. 

If you have any questions for me or are interested in working with me, please reach out to me: modernmolliee@gmail.com
