Molly Hughes serves as the operations coordinator for the Ephant Group, a real estate development firm based in Knoxville, TN. Her professional career started out at age 15 when she received receptionist of the year out of all the locations in the region. From there her determination and goal-driven mentality drove her to keep moving forward in management. She went on to earn an Associate’s degree in Business Management as well as a Bachelors of Arts in Interior Design degree from Eastern Tennessee University. Before devoting her work fulltime to the Ephant Group, Molly was a fulltime student and Assistant Store Manager for a family owned company. Working there taught her a lot, specifically to think analytically and how to strategize to accomplish and achieve company goals. When asked about her approach to success her response was “There are no secrets to success. It’s the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure for self belief and hard work will always bring you success.” She strives to improve herself and her ethics more and more everyday.
