Bio Jessica Pieklo was born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska and is a midwesterner through and through. A lawyer, professor and writer trained in the reliably liberal bastions of Madison, Oakland/Berkeley, and Minneapolis, she spent the first part of her career working her way through legal services groups, law firms and eventually academics where she spends most her time teaching paralegal and law students. She also took her advocacy to the web, blogging about politics and public policy. You can find her writing at www.Care2.com and www.hegemommy.com where she frequently tackles issues of constitutional law, civil rights and business law. When she is not politicking or writing she enjoys spending time with her family, cooking and reading. All of which inevitably leads to more politicking and writing.
