About Jessica

Empathic Hearts

Jessica Maricevic is a writer, educator and researcher, with a passion for empathy, advocacy, and social responsibility; all of which serve as the inspiration for her creative and qualitative process. To satisfy her writing avocation, Jessica empathically explores the contemporary complexities of a modern woman through crafting literary prose and vignette-style memoirs. As a doctoral candidate, Jessica intends to present groundbreaking qualitative findings on the use of therapy dogs and their impact on secondary students’ social-emotional competencies.

Whether writing, teaching, or researching, Jessica takes great pride in her innate ability to inspire others to “Do All Things with Love” (the mantra displayed on her favorite Spiritual Gangster® tank-top) – and believes it is even better to do those things with a dog, or two, by one’s side.
