After high school, Mollie made her way to Los Angeles to attend the prestigious CalArts film program to pursue her desire to be a filmmaker. While working towards her degree she fell in love with the music industry, and began her professional career in entertainment working for the urban A&R department Epic at Sony Music. Her entrepreneurial spirit was quickly realized with the founding of Majestic Studios, which became the recording home for many artists on the Epic and Electra labels in addition to Virgin and many others.
It was around this time that Mollie began to explore her personal artistic talents, and became a successful spoken word artist as well. She recorded several albums, toured the country, and appeared on the HBO series Def Poetry Jam, as well as being featured on multiple television shows and feature length documentaries.
