Molly Wadhwani was born in the United States and raised in Hong Kong where she graduated from the Hong Kong International School. She received her B.S. from Santa Clara University in political science.
Molly spent four years working in Washington, D.C., first for Representative Norman Mineta and then later for Representative Anna Eshoo, both Members of Congress from northern California. She focused primarily on immigration and environmental issues affecting California and the United States. Molly left politics to pursue work in the technology sector and moved to San Francisco in 1995 where she joined the marketing teams at Scientific Learning and then Moai Technologies. Working primarily with start up organizations, she helped them establish their marketing practices in both communications and product marketing. In 2000, she took her technical experience and background in marketing to a small securities firm based in San Francisco, Stone & Youngberg, and became their Director of Marketing. She updated marketing systems and practices which had been in place for over 70 years.
Molly has been an active volunteer at her children’s schools. She co-chaired the gala and served on the Board of Directors at their preschool. Her daughters are now at Hamlin where Molly spent two years as co-chair of Lend-a-Hand and recently as co-chair of Winterfest. She has also devoted her time to other community efforts in San Francisco as a member of the Executive Committee and volunteer at the San Francisco Education Fund and, recently, as a fundraising volunteer at the Hamilton Family Center.
You can find Molly on weekends with her family and dog hiking in the Presidio, riding horses in Sonoma and cooking many, many meals at home in San Francisco. She and her family love to travel throughout the United States and around the world.
