Molly Connors -- Director of Nonprofit Services, Care2
Molly learned first hand the power of having a ready and dedicated list of supporters to turn to for support and donations during her many years with PBS. Molly was one of a team of three who started PBS Online in the mid 1990s, the precursor to pbs.org. Molly started her marketing career over 20 years ago on the front lines... working in customer service for a Richmond, Virginia cable company. Those early lessons in the importance of providing exceptional customer service were invaluable as she built a career in marketing and business development with companies such as C-SPAN, The Learning Channel (TLC), PBS, the U.S. Naval Academy Alumni Association and most recently in starting her own Women Owned Small Business providing marketing services and branded product solutions to clients. When not helping nonprofits recruit new donors and supporters, you can find Molly enjoying time with her family at her home near Weems Creek in Annapolis, Maryland. Molly graduated from Randolph-Macon College with a BA in history.
