Molly Cruz is a visual journalist by trade, foodie and dog owner by heart. When she is not in the newsroom she is trying new restaurants and playing with her fur babies Lucy and Thor.
Molly grew up with parents in the military. Her nomadic upbringing gave her extensive opportunity to travel the world. It was through these travels that she developed a passion for photography.
Success in her secondary education led her to an internship with a base newspaper, that introduced her to layout and journalistic graphic design, ultimately leading her to Western Washington University to study journalism. Molly graduates from Western in 2019 with a bachelor’s degree in visual journalism with additional focus in education and social justice, and English. Molly loves adventure and capturing timeless moments
