The bulk of Juniper Russo's career is spent advocating for science, particularly as it relates to parenting and civil rights issues. As the mother of at least one child on the autism spectrum-- and with the unusual experience of being a mother who changed her stance on immunization-- Russo has become a leader in advocacy for evidence-based health care and disability acceptance.

It doesn't stop there, though! Ms. Russo has many interests beyond vaccine advocacy, particularly in the fields of science and activism. She expresses these interests by writing for dozens of different media outlets and by engaging in real-world activism and advocacy.
When she's not extra-busy with her two kids, four pets, and full-time job as an author and activist, Juniper is also a consultant for Usborne Books and More, which is a fun opportunity to support literacy and get parents and kids out and having fun.
