Molly Vazquez has yet to find a task she can’t complete. As an integral part of the HR team here at Soligent, she has been known to wear many hats, such as but not limited to: go-to for all HR related questions, Pay-Roll, Soligent Internal Event Manager, Storage Organizer, and all around excellent team player. When Molly sees a task that needs to be completed she dives right in.
Molly was born in Arizona but spent her summers at her Grandparents farm in Sonoma County where she relocated to during High School. After receiving her Masters in Education she taught at a continuation high school. After taking some time off she returned back to work as an HR Representative as a favor to a friend, for which we are eternally grateful. She often has us in stitches as she regales us with stories about the adventures of having three teenagers at home. We are incredibly lucky to have her as part of our Soligent Family.
