Molly began working with SOS in August of 2017. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Marine Biology from Texas A&M University. She has worked with wildlife rehabilitation and nonprofit management for the past six years, and has a background in marine mammal science and behavior. She worked on Big Island in 2012/2013, which sparked her interest and appreciation for Hawai’i’s diverse ecosystem. She is passionate about marine conservation and enjoys getting involved with other local organizations on her days off. Molly hopes to help preserve Kaua‘i’s natural environment and is happy spending her days helping native wildlife thrive, one bird at a time.

Jacqueline Nelson - Wildlife Rehabilitation Technician 

Jacqueline earned a B.S. in Natural Resource Conservation and a B.A. in Public Relations from Virginia Tech (2017). She fell in love with wildlife rehabilitation while working as an intern for Audubon Sharon and the Wildlife Center of Virginia. She enjoyed learning proper wildlife handling, feeding, and husbandry techniques throughout her time at these centers. Jacqueline also has a passion for connecting people to wildlife through multimedia channels and teaching people about the natural world around them. At SOS she gets to combine these passions together to help the endangered species on the island of Kaua‘i.
