Hi, I'm Molly! Native of the Pacific Northwest in the U.S. where I love to rock climb and jump in freezing alpine lakes and hike to beautiful spots. I've traveled a bit through Europe, South America and Southeast Asia but I want to see more. I've been working as a newspaper reporter for more than 6 years; I love telling stories and meeting new people and learning new things, but lately the anti-press rhetoric has become a little too vitriolic for me. So I'm hoping to set off on a new adventure and find community wherever I may go, focusing on the truly important things in life instead of constantly stressing about random strangers hating me on the Internet. I like working hard and getting my hands dirty, so I can go to bed at night feeling like I accomplished something!

Fluent in Spanish; excellent writer; solid cook & baker; friendly; gardening; basic construction/maintenance; rock climbing; yoga; are these skills? I'm not sure...
I've been writing professionally for nearly 7 years, and I would love to put that skill to use in whatever capacity a host might need - proofreading brochures, copywriting for your website, travel journalism promoting your location, etc. My work has also made me comfortable talking to just about anyone, about anything, and it's prepared me to seek information from a variety of sources. If that sounds like something you could use, let me know!
I have some gardening experience after growing up with a dad who had several greenhouses, but I would really like to learn more about farming. I'm a hard worker, with great attention to detail, and am willing and eager to build new skills.
