Lisa Batten, PhD, CPT, PN1
Hi! Welcome to the "about me" section. This is mostly a little highlight section to help you get an idea of my experience. If you want to see my science CV, you can find it here.
I am a consultant, freelance writer, personal trainer, and health coach. I specialize in presenting scientifically accurate articles to a variety of audiences (I can make boring stuff fun). I have been published in various scientific journals, websites, apps, and health reports.
Over the course of my career, I have worked with world-renown researchers investigating compounds for the treatment of mental health disorders. I even coordinated the first ever trial in Canada investigating ketamine for depression.
I have also served as an editorial manager on scientific journals and written many successful grant applications for agencies such as CIHR and NIH. I have assisted with hundreds of grant, scholarship, and graduate application reviews over the years. I am thorough in my work and have an excellent eye for detail. I offer writing, consultation, and editing services for grants, papers, scholarship applications, and CVs.
I am a trained therapist and offer consultation for meditation scripts and mental health apps. Additionally, I am a certified personal trainer and nutrition coach. My passion for health and fitness led to the development of my company Buff Buds Fitness, which I run with my husband, Leon. He's a pretty great guy.
In addition to my scientific work, I have worked as a copywriter for various supplement companies and social media influencers. My words have appeared in campaigns for Starbucks, Old Navy, Adobe, Google, Target, and many more.
On a personal level, I enjoy surfing, crossfit, traveling, hiking, snugs with my dog, and anything involving a sunset with a side of nature.
Why Hire Me?
I am an extremely creative and passionate person. Also, I am an absolute thrill to work with.

Whether you are trying to sell a product, improve your SEO, get a grant, or provide some high quality scientifically accurate articles- I am your gal.
Let's work together!
