Jurgen Mollers, Ph.D.

Jurgen lives in the Bay Area with his six-year old daughter who he adores and frequently writes about. His passion for storytelling is based on a deep appreciation for the miraculous unfolding of our lives.

Kristen Burns Darmofal

Kristen holds a degree in English literature from the State University of New York at Stony Brook and did additional graduate work at the University of Washington before launching two businesses on her own. She not only brings her experience as a writer and group facilitator to the company but also her organizational and team building skills.

Rachel Markowitz

A wordsmith from an early age, Rachel began her professional career poring over department store ads as a proofreader for Macy’s in San Francisco. This job, as well as her participation in UC Berkeley Extension’s Professional Sequence in Copyediting, provided her with a great foundation in nitpickyness. A freelance copy editor/proofreader since 1999, she works on everything from retail catalogs and web copy to magazines, nonfiction books, and cookbooks.
