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! 

Molly E. McLaurin attended George Mason University during its famous Final Four run (can you see the blurry Molly on the left side?!). 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.

Why Monarch?:

Monarch Connections is grounded in the belief that Jesus created each of us for a purpose. The name “Monarch Connections” is inspired by the Monarch butterfly, a transformative creature, and an image that reminds the founder of a time where her personal transformation began to form. Molly pulls from a few key moments in her life and career in naming her company, and cannot wait help you find what's missing and transform as well. 

Monarch Connections strives to bring people together, find what's missing & create transformation through meaningful connections.

Coaching happens through a series of conversations.

As your coach, I am excited to give you the floor, hear from you, and allow time to process. Think of me as a guide, asking the best questions as we explore your thoughts together. 

I offer three packages.

Two of the three are conducted over a 4-week cycle, considered monthly plans. There is also a one-time package.

For clients who have purchased at least 2 coaching packages, you are they entitled to grab 20-minute refreshers to help before, after or during their sessions.

I coach to see clients grow.

Tracking growth is extremely different from person to person, and that's the intricate beauty of the types of transformation I get to witness.
