Last Fall she published her first book, that sold out on Amazon the first day. Small Victories: The Off-Camera Life of an On-Camera Mom
is a funny, accurate, real life account of trying to juggle too much, and showing imperfections in relatable ways. A review in the Huffington Post
described the book as, “…honesty twisted with humor. Stories you’ll nod along in agreement with as you read along. An authentic voice that shows what you see is not always real. You’ll laugh, cry, then want to tell your friends.”
Since arriving in Charlotte in 2003, Molly has covered gangs, terrorism and the fight to legalize cannabis oil in North Carolina. She is also actively involved in Charlotte’s cancer community and well-known for #MollysKids, local kids she follows who face uphill medical battles.

Cancer has hit her family hard. Her grandfather died of pancreatic cancer. Her mom died last year of breast cancer, her grandmother fought it, and her great-grandmother also died from the disease. Her father, who she says is her forever hero, died of colon cancer in 2006.
Every year Molly emcees Komen Charlotte “Race for the Cure” in Uptown Charlotte, Charlotte’s biggest 5k, and has the largest team of the hundreds registered. She says it’s her favorite morning all year.
Molly and her husband, Wes, have a 7-year-old daughter (Parker) and a 3-year-old son (Hutch). King of the household is Fisher, their beloved mutt.

ANNE STEPPE, CPO
Anne received her degree in Mass Communication from the University of North Carolina at Asheville where she was also a member of the university’s Division I Volleyball team. Before joining Simplicity in 2011, Anne was the Recreation Ministries Director at Covenant Presbyterian Church for 12 years. Anne feels a deep sense of calling to the field of organizing. She enjoys the journey of guiding people to the realization that their lives are not to be defined by the amount of stuff they own, rather the experiences in which they engage. Anne is passionate about speaking to groups and organizations as a way to further share her message. Anne believes that in order to fully embrace and live into ones calling on their life you must rid your home and life of the unnecessary “life plaque,” that builds up over time. Anne and her husband, Jon, enjoy a full and blessed life with their son, Cody, and dog Abby.
Favorite space to organize: "
I love to take a chaotic, overwhelmed office space and give it an attitude adjustment! Nothing feels better than putting the paper bully in its place! Offices should be lean, mean, efficient working machines. The satisfaction of getting an office ship-shape is the best!"
See Anne on the Spotlight Stage Friday and Saturday!
