The Conscious Writer


As owner at and former president of the San Diego Professional Editors Network (2015-2018), I bring more than 20 years of professional copy writing and editing experience to every project.

I’ve written and edited online content, blogs, e-newsletters, grants, studies and reports, press releases, and marketing materials for various nonprofits, including the Balboa Park Conservancy, The Scripps Research Institute, the Patient Safety Movement Foundation, and the San Diego History Center.

I also edit full-length books and ebooks for self-publishing authors, yoga manuals, as well as scholarly articles and dissertations for academics. In addition, I work with small business owners in the alternative health and holistic service industries to develop web and social media content and marketing materials. I have a proven track record of providing quality service to many satisfied clients.

I am especially comfortable in the following content areas: arts and culture, design, education, nature and the environment, self-help, alternative health, technology, and sports and recreation.

I’m familiar with the following styles: APA, Chicago, and AP.
