Molly Vogt, RL
VP Business Development
After serving 16 years as a consultant to financial advisors, small business owners and their employee’s, Molly began taking her advice directly to the communities, where she feels she will be most effective helping improve the quality of life for all Americans.
Molly Co-Hosts 2 radio shows: "The Americhicks – Molly & Kim” weekdays, 6-7am on KLZ 560 AM, as well as “The Americhicks WWII Project” Sundays, 1-2pm on KEZW 1430AM. She founded Vogt4Colorado, LLC, a consultant firm, serves as the Chair of the Advisory Board for the Article V “Act 2 Blueprint”, serves on the board of the Colorado Republican Business Coalition (CRBC), is the Director of My Purse Politics, and has served as both a Field Director and an Outreach Director for Americans for Prosperity Foundation.
Her passion for growing and protecting financial nest eggs has multiplied immensely during this historic financial volatility over the last few years. In addition to helping Americans maneuver around public policy that hits them where it hurts the most, their wallets, Molly now seeks to educate the “rule makers” and all Americans that there are real and sustainable economic benefits to free markets, fair competition, consumer choice, minimally mandated regulations and low tax rates.
The last five years, Molly has been a staunch advocate for the oil and gas industry by educating and working to defeat anti-oil and gas initiatives proposed throughout Colorado. She has built speakers bureaus to address questions, present facts and debate naysayers on the facts regarding responsible energy development. Through CRED she recruited Coloradans to star in multiple forms of education advertisements, including: T.V., social media videos, billboards, buses, mailers, etc.
You may have even seen her face on a billboard at I-25 and Colorado. Today, Molly and her co-host, Kim Monson, host energy expert guests monthly that provide energy updates and/or educate on the benefits of the industry to their audience. She now serves as VP of Business Development with GAEA Energy Advisors.

What is "GAEA"?
GAIA (GAEA) was the goddess of the earth. She was one of the primordial elemental deities (protogenoi) born at the dawn of creation.
We have chosen her name to represent what we, at GAEA, believe in: We have been given a great a gift, planet Earth. With that gift comes responsibility. At GAEA, we believe we have been entrusted to be good stewards of the natural resources Earth provides us. Our industry must always be innovating to ensure we are balancing all of our needs for responsible, reliable and affordable energy while at the same time, preserving the health of our beautiful planet.
