COX |Molly Cox
Funny Speaker. Solid Content.

Molly blends her business, education and improvisation background to connect body, mind and spirit to show people how to become more effective professionally and personally and to help people to live a more joyful life. As the caregiver to her mother, who had cancer, and the primary caregiver to her father, who suffers from Alzheimer’s disease, she lives her message of the importance of being in the moment and paying attention—every day.
