Stay at home mom with an MBA from the University of Florida.
Motto: begin everyday with a green-saving mind.
Writing started as a result of a passion for the environment. While I have not always been consciously “green”, I have consistently been frugal as taught by my grandmother who lived thru the Great Depression. After living in various places like Hawaii and an island in South Carolina, the environment caught my eye as an entity that needed a voice.
In addition to having blogged for Creative Loafing Tampa Green Community, I was a speaker at the 2007 SGMP SE Regional Conference about ways to green your meetings, office, and lifestyle. And have served on the Board and as campaign leader with Suncoast Chapter Surfrider Foundation since 2007.
In 2008, the Respondek household finished implementing many of the “green” ways and achieved a 25% usage reduction on their electric and water bills. Since then, the ball has kept rolling and she uses her work experience, Business education, and now mommy-hood to inspire and be creative in living sustainability through words.
The Book, "Struggling in Love" completes a goal set 20 years ago = I will publish a poetry book [check].

Struggling In Love
by Jessica Respondek
The late Teens and early Twenties take a toll on a women's soul; Finding herself and searching for "The One" who completes her. However, she is not alone.
The book of poems identify and empathize the journey. What not told: Every journey has a good ending.
