During her collegiate career, she lettered four years at Towson and served as a co-captain her junior and senior seasons.  A four-year starter at defense, she posted six goals, four assists, 10 points, 84 ground balls, 21 draw controls and 24 caused turnovers for Towson.

Prior to her graduation, she served a three-month internship in physical therapy and then a four-month term as a strength and conditioning intern. Mollot has also served as a counselor for several lacrosse camps.
