Molly, 26, grew up on a beef-cattle farm in the Allegheny Mountains. Her full name is Mary Rebecca Wilkinson Seltzer.
She graduated from the University of Virginia in 2007 and from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism in 2008. She has been published in The Daily Herald, Northwest Indiana Times and The Washington Post. She was also a paid humor columnist for Fastweb.com. She works now as a speed headliner and reporter at Bloomberg News in New York.
Molly would love to become a syndicated humor columnist, have a cooking show on the Food Network, ride in a hot air balloon, open a bakery and live in a cottage on the Scottish cliffs. She likes throwing pots, bikram yoga, killing various herbs she tries to grow on her fire escape (especially basil), ice hockey, portrait photography and making lists.
Molly’s mother, Melissa Dowd, is the Highland County Commonwealth’s Attorney. Her father is Curtis Seltzer, author of How to Be a Dirt-Smart Buyer of Country Property.
