She was introduced to Efrain as she studied the effects of ecotourism on the small town of Mindo and fell in love with its natural beauty and the warm and wonderful people who lived there immediately.
Molly and Efrain started their business in 2000 and have been introducing travelers to the wonders of the Ecuadorian cloud forest ever since.
Molly spends her time guiding the businesses toward excellence, upholding the highest standards of sustainability and corporate responsibility. Thanks to her dedication, Casa Divina Lodge and SabinaTour Operator have been recognized internationally and certified by TourCert, a rigorous German sustainability-based certifying organization.
Molly played an instrumental role in the creation of El Manantial, an alternative education school in Mindo. She also is a member of the Circulo de Mujeres del Bosque and works regularly to support fair trade and conservation projects locally and in the country at large.
Currently, she is a volunteer at SALEM International Community Center, where she supports the education and development of the children and adolescents of Mindo in a safe, reliable and happy environment.
