Creativity + Play: Molly Hallweaver & Eric Howard

Molly Hallweaver & Eric Howard

Creativity+ presents the second Speakers Series of 2019. The theme is Play: an activity essential to creativity and social well-being, but often overlooked as frivolous or unproductive. Each Creativity+ Play event will feature conversations with two speakers from diverse backgrounds offering their unique perspectives on the topic. Next up are Molly Hallweaver and Eric Howard.

Molly Hallweaver


Molly grew up in the woods of Maine and then headed west to Santa Cruz for college. She likes to say she earned a degree in Ultimate Frisbee and Surfing with a minor in Neuroscience. After graduating, she got a job as an after-school teacher at a public elementary school in San Francisco and rode her bike across the Golden Gate bridge to work every day (Type 2 fun). She traveled in South America for six months, exploring, volunteering, learning Spanish, and eating empanadas. Molly returned to the East Coast for med school at Tufts University where she played for Brüte Squad, Boston's women's ultimate team, and won a national championship title. She switched coasts again, landing in Sacramento as an emergency resident at UC Davis Medical Center. She now spends most of her time in the hospital working ridiculous hours and, with her limited free time, you'll find her running, biking, climbing, skiing and, of course, playing frisbee.

Eric Howard
