Topics here at Heathen Hippie include humanism, marriage, kids, education, parenting, and a whole lot more.

Heathenhippie.com is dedicated to the simple mission of spreading awareness about human rights and encouraging critical thinking about social issues.

My name is Jessica. I am a mom of 2 little boys, and a writer. I also have a tendency to be opinionated and stubborn.  I get pissed off about human rights issues a LOT.  But, I decided to stop flooding my Facebook friends with my ramblings and arguments.  Instead, I decided I would create this website for you, my readers and friends.  That’s not the only reason, but it is a big one.

I have a B.A. in Sociology and a Graduate Certificate (which basically amounts to 95% of a graduate degree, but I never finished.  I know. I know…) in Elementary Education.  I used to be a teacher and a social worker. I loved both jobs, but hated the systems.  I also felt helpless sometimes because I was bound by procedures and structures that were impossible for me to navigate in a productive way.  The kids I worked with were always some of my favorite people.  But, everything about the jobs always sucked beyond belief and made me feel like I was running out of air.

In any case, since I don’t work in those fields in a traditional sense anymore, I devote a lot of time to researching and writing about them.

Enough about me.  Tell me something about YOU:
