Author Biography

While pursuing her Bachelor of Arts Degree in English and Biology and graduating with honors from Bucknell University, she enjoyed breaking a few bones (including a few of her own) as captain of the women's rugby team. She obtained her degree in Osteopathic Medicine from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and completed her pediatric specialty training at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital.

"Dr. Jill," as she is affectionately called by her patients, has been voted one of New Jersey's Top Docs and Favorite Kids' Docs by NJ Family Magazine for the past 10 years.

When she's not caring for her patients, posting helpful parenting articles, writing inspirational children's books, or delivering impactful keynote presentations, Dr. Jill enjoys hiking, biking, and kayaking with her family as well as crushing a challenging crossword puzzle with a nice cup of tea at their condo in Costa Rica.

Dr. Jill strives for open communication with parents so together they may guide their children to be the most successful, healthy, and productive adults possible.

She works hard to be a role model for her patients and knows she's in the right profession when a parent tells her, “Doctor Jill, you make a difference.”

The Universe Is Listening: A children's guide to happiness through positive and mindful thinking by Dr. Jill Garripoli Pedalino is a profound and insightful book that speaks about the power of the Universe and how it communicates with everyone through their feelings. The Universe is everybody's built-in guidance system and the book tells readers the Universe is listening and waiting to hear their next thought, their next desire, their next big idea, their worries, doubts, and what makes them sad. The Universe always gives you what you think about. The book also speaks about how the body listens to one's thoughts and how positive thoughts can make the body healthier and stronger, and how sad, scared, and negative thoughts can drain one's energy.

The Universe Is Listening by Dr. Jill Garripoli Pedalino is a good tool to make children understand how powerful their thoughts can be and to tune their thinking accordingly. Lina Safar makes the concept palpable to readers with her beautiful illustrations which make it easy for tutors and parents to help their children understand the author's concept and practice it. It is a good book for tutors and parents to use for read-aloud and storytelling sessions to make children more mindful and positive by changing the way they think and look at life with happiness, peace, and contentment. The book will encourage children to realize the power of the Universe in their lives and to align their thoughts in a manner that there is abundance in their lives.
