Molly Knight grew up in Armidale NSW. Her parents owned and ran a small family corner store, Knights Corner, which still exists today. Molly’s parents worked 15 hours a day, 7 days a week and Molly worked alongside them in the shop after school and on weekends. The Knights were a good, hard-working family; working hard to support their family and community. This life was, of course, before the age of supermarkets and big business, the rise of which has threatened the opportunity for hard-working families of today to prosper with a small business, which Molly believes is the backbone of Australia and must be supported by Government.
Molly has been married to her soul mate, Mike, for 15 years; living and working together in a partnership built on respect and compromise. Molly is the mother of two remarkable young women and Granny to three magnificent granddaughters.
After leaving school Molly first studied nursing. When she became increasingly ill and discovered modern medicine offered her no cure, Molly turned to natural medicine which restored her health. Her own healing story prompted Molly to study natural therapies and she has now worked in the natural health field for over 30 years – working across Australia in Canberra, Perth and Sydney. She is a Herbalist and has studied nutrition, iridology, clinical hypnotherapy, aromatherapy and Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT). Molly’s deep knowledge in her field and her caring nature have resulted in long-term patients of up to 25 years seeing her, with some travelling from Perth, Melbourne, Canberra and Queensland. Molly treats her patients like family, with solid friendships formed from her deep commitment to the health and wellbeing of others.
Molly lectured at Nature Care College in the 1990s and has been running her own clinical practice since 1989, building on experience she gained from working in a range of clinics and alongside gifted therapists. Molly has observed radical change in the health field in the last 50 years. She is passionate about ensuring that natural medicine, the oldest and most cost-effective form of healing, maintains its rightful place in our society. It is fundamental to Molly’s values that people have the choice of treatment that complements their beliefs, goals and lifestyle. Molly will fight to ensure we all have our voice heard and demonstrate our constitutional freedoms and democratic rights in all areas of health care.
