MEET THE TEAM
EDGe was founded on the belief that every business owner should have the opportunity to be successful. Eric Glymph started EDGe in 2013 to help friends who were small business owners understand where their cash was going. Eric's focus was helping them create forward looking financial goals to grow profitably. Over time, EDGe has evolved into a modern approach to financial understanding by combining technology and personalized guidance to expand business owners financial knowledge and elevate their business. At EDGe, we create unique, tailored solutions that fit any business. We are all about building long term relationships based on us providing value to business owners.

While a marketing internship set Molly on her path in the world of small business, the puzzle behind the numbers is what got her hooked. She earned her BSBA from the University of Richmond and went on to work for a startup for over 8 years. During that time she saw first hand the magic that comes when you mix a good idea with hard work, a strong team, forward thinking, and above all else - passion. Molly went on to earn her CPA license and worked in public accounting for 5 years, where she broadened her accounting experience through audit and attest services, tax planning and preparation, financial statement preparation, and business consulting. Ultimately, the passion of the small business owners she works with is what fuels her in her career. Molly lives in Maine with her jack russell ("D") and loves all things outdoors.
