Jessica Purcell, the founder of Thoughtfully Sustainable, is a Chemistry teacher turned stay-at-home mom who is passionate about making the science of sustainability accessible to all learners. She creates simple sustainability science experiments, written in English and Spanish, that can be done at home in an effort to teach students of all ages how interconnected humans are with the rest of the natural world. Jess lives in central Pennsylvania with her husband, two kids, and two cats. She can usually be found outside, working out the kinks of an experiment, up-cycling trash into “treasure,” hiking with her family or attempting to read a book while being cajoled into a game of hide and seek. @thoughtfullysustainable  |
