Member Spotlight – Mollie Williams

Mollie Williams is an experienced Junior Leaguer who currently serves on the BINGO Committee. Mollie joined the Junior League of Miami in 2009 as a way to give back to her community while she was home caring for her newborn son. She transferred to the JLDOC in 2014 and has served on the Extra Hands, Bargain Sale, and now the BINGO committees.

Mollie’s true passion was working with Therapy Dogs in Miami. When her cocker spaniel, Mack, became certified, Molly and her pup joined up with “Paws to Read.” The organization sent owners and their dogs to local libraries where they worked with kids to help them overcome their fear of reading. Sweet Mack, who passed away last May, served as a therapy dog for 6 years.
