About Me!


Thanks for stopping by! My name is Jessica Schlueter, and I write and run The Tree Kisser blog. I live in Denver, CO with my husband and our two rescue pups. I’m a dedicated animal and human rights advocate, a passion that influences my purchases, my politics, and my priorities. I’m committed to using my privilege in the fight for social, environmental, and racial justice.

The Tree Kisser brand started in 2013 as an animal advocacy and sustainability blog, but it has gone through many evolutions over the years. In 2014, I launched The Tree Kisser apparel line, which raised more than $50,000 for animal rescues. Since closing that business in 2017, I’ve become increasingly involved in local and national politics, and my content (particularly on Instagram) has expanded accordingly. Going forward, I’m defining this more as an Ethical Citizen Blog. A Do The Least Harm Possible Blog. A┬áCompassionate Choices Blog. And an Always Keep Learning Blog.

As a vegan since 2009, animal advocacy will always be a part of my life and a part of my content. My commitment to animal-friendly choices isn’t going anywhere! I hope my long time supporters will welcome the addition of content covering the social and political forces that impact us all. I’m always trying to be a better human, which to me means continually adding to the list of causes I fight for. If you’re on board with that, you’ll be happy here!

While this blog serves as a home base for my writing and resources, I’m most active over on Instagram. Follow me at @thetreekisser for ongoing information, inspiration, and fun!

  1. Happy to know of you and all the inspiring things you do. I would like to cite you in class writings, please direct me to citation information. I suppose your last name is the only missing data, if you do not publish that, I will then use the article title. Thank you <3

  2. Jessica I just stumbled over your site and your article on impissible burger. All I can say is wow how refreshing your voice is. I have run into the same vitriol at a meeting for the future of our neighborhood park in Colorado springs. It seems no one can disagree anymore without wanting to rip the larynx of the other person out with their teeth. I love your passion and total honesty about those ethical gray areas we all bump into at times. I agree with you about hearing opposing views. I don’t believe others voices should be silenced I just think that civility is a must. We can’t accomplish anything good without it. I wish more people could express themselves without knee jerk hysterics but I guess this is the world we live in now. Your a class act and I look foreward to browsing your site more. Blessings.
