What They’re Saying
Thank you for being a great dating coach. You've empowered me to take steps I didn't think plausible let alone possible and it is extending into other areas I need to take steps in as well. I'm happy I took this journey. My confidence has skyrocketed and I am happy to share that I met an amazing woman!
I really loved attending Adoptee Talk. Everyone was super welcoming. It was a low-pressure situation that allowed you to share as much or as little as you wanted. Being in a room with fellow adoptees is such a blessing. Molly has such a gift for creating a welcoming environment.
Working with Molly as a panelist was great. She was in regular communication with us in the time leading up to the event. She was clear about how she wanted us to contribute and did not ask anything of us that was too burdensome. The event went well and I believe both the single individuals and the couples got a lot out of what was shared.
ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Molly E. McLaurin launched Monarch Connections out of a desire to help people thrive in otherwise intimidating social situations. 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 frozen KIND bars.
Molly E. McLaurin attended George Mason University during its famous Final Four run. 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 adopted twin, ‘military brat’, she enjoys talking about identity, race, travel, cross-cultural experiences, adoption, and 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.
Monarch Connections is grounded in the belief that Jesus uniquely created each of us for a purpose. The name “Monarch Connections” is inspired by the Monarch butterfly. Like butterflies, we all are given life, are created for a unique purpose, yet through trials and the ability to take healthy risks, we transform!
