Molly Maxwell is a graduate of Shawnee Mission East High School, the William Allen White School of Journalism at the University of Kansas, and New York University’s Silver School of Social Work. After nearly 15 years in New York City, Molly and husband Ryan Sprott moved back to the Kansas City area in 2010 with their three sons.
In New York, Molly started her career at Metropolis Magazine before taking a marketing position at City of Hope, a non-profit healthcare organization dedicated to cancer treatment and research. After earning her license as a clinical social worker, she began a career at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York, working with children and young people born with HIV and teaching first year medical students a course in doctor-patient communication. Because of her studies, her work, and her generally busy life, Molly began to realize the importance of self-care for women, finding that an occasional visit to a local nail studio for a pedicure or chair massage was enough to revitalize
her as a clinician, wife, mother and friend.
