Molly MacGuffie

Molly is Adara’s Clinical Programmes Manager

Prior to joining Adara, Molly worked as a NICU nurse for more than 15 years. Molly was involved in NICU Lactation programme development, educating staff and working directly with birthing parents. She chaired the multi-disciplinary Feeding Committee focusing on nutrition and feeding of medically fragile infants. Molly also participated in writing and teaching protocols and researched up to date clinical practice. 

Before joining the team as Clinical Programmes Manager, Molly was a long-term volunteer with Adara. In 2008 she began collecting medical supplies for Adara’s annual ‘Packathon’. Later, she joined Adara’s International Medical Volunteer team to work on the Hospital to Home project and traveled to Uganda in 2019 to provide training.   

Molly graduated from Seattle University in 2006 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. She is also an International Board-Certified Lactation Consultant. She has long been passionate about global health, which began when working as a community health student nurse in Belize City.

Molly grew up in Seattle where she currently resides with her family. Outside of work, she can be found tangled up in a ball of yarn knitting, preferably with a view.
