After graduating from OHMA she interned with the Apollo Theater Oral History Project, and worked as a researcher for BLDG92, the historical institute at the Brooklyn Navy Yard.

Molly maintains a blog "Brooklyn In Love and At War" which features and analyzes letters written during WWII. Some of the letters are now on display at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, where she plans to host a public program in the coming year. She is currently a doctoral student in American Studies at Rutgers University-Newark.
