Molly Woodstock wrangles content for Sagacity’s many custom clients, most notably Travel Portland, for whom she crafts local guides on topics from haunted hotels to pup-friendly breweries. In her spare time, she edits Portland Monthly’s health blog, The Balance, where she writes about body positivity, probiotics, mental health, and macro bowls, among other nice things. Since August 2013, she’s doggedly ramped up PoMo’s vegan coverage, mostly as an excuse to eat endless vegan pizza.

A native Oregonian, Molly spent three years at Chapman University in Orange County, earning a degree in documentary film production and vowing to never leave the Pacific Northwest again. She’d really like to meet your dog.
