The Loveland, Colorado native is a proud sister to her two younger brothers - Jeremy and Jordan Bloom. While her younger brother Jordan is a Boston-based cardio-thoracic surgeon, the youngest of the three, Jeremy is a retired NFL player.
Growing up, all three Bloom siblings were into skiing. Interestingly, Jeremy - who stands five feet and seven inches (175 cm in height) - is the only athlete in history to ever ski in Winter Olympics and get drafted in the NFL.
At the height of her career, Molly - now age 40 - ranked 3rd in the North American female skiing standings. But once Jeremy began his NFL journey, she felt the necessity to out-perform her younger sibling - by any means necessary.
