Molly E. McLaurin launched Monarch Connections out of a desire to help people thrive in day-to-day life. She has a God-given talent for connecting – connecting people to one another, to resources, and to opportunities. She is passionate about relating to others, traveling, and meeting you! 

About the Founder:

Molly E. McLaurin attended George Mason University during its famous Final Four run (can you see the blurry Molly on the left side of the picture?!). When she wasn’t rooting for the team, she was studying Community Studies and Psychology where she gained a foundational understanding of the complexity of human interactions, which still informs her work today. Growing up as a transracial adoptee, twin, ‘military brat’, and world traveler, she enjoys talking about identity, race, travel, cross-cultural experiences, and adoption.  She believes her life story fuels her work. After college, she made a series of moves, serving and living in Camden, NJ, then in Malawi for 6 months, Miami for a brief stint, and back to the DMV, all before landing in Philly. Some years, and plenty of social experiences later, she decided to call Philadelphia her home and currently resides there with her husband, and son.

As a family, no topic is a "no-no" as we enjoy learning from our collective experiences, and strive to have an open mind to be able to live out who we were created to be, everyday, not just at work.

Why Monarch?:

Monarch Connections is grounded in the belief that Jesus created each of us for a purpose, and for transformation.

The name “Monarch Connections” is inspired by the Monarch butterfly, a transformative creature, and an image that reminds Molly of a time where her personal transformation truly began.  

Monarch Connections aims to bring people together, and to help you find what's missing.
