  • When Marica is not reading the latest medical studies about trending beauty treatments, she is handing out skincare advice to her friends over a cup of coffee.
  • She has been a health, wellness, and fitness enthusiast since her early 20s and went on to become a 200-hour certified yoga teacher.
  • She's always curious about the latest shenanigans the royal family is getting up to and loves researching royal family protocols and their origins.


Marica has been a freelance writer since 2018. She kicked off her career writing articles about the wizarding world for MuggleNet's news team. From there, Marica landed various writing jobs, most notably for Bad Yogi's health and fitness blog, Bad Yogi Magazine, covering everything from women's health to the latest yoga, fitness, beauty, and celebrity news. One of the highlights of her career so far has been co-authoring three books, including "The Unofficial Harry Potter Bestiary" and "The Ultimate Wizarding World Guide to Magical Studies."


Marica received a B.A. in drama and theater arts and a B.A. Honors in film and visual media. These degrees provide her with unique insight into the entertainment industry and are the reason she knows a thing or two about stage makeup (and all the skin woes that come with using it every day).
