About Jan Percival Lipscomb

Jan Percival Lipscomb

Jan Percival Lipscomb

Founder and president, Jan Percival Lipscomb is a life-long San Diegan and a graduate of Point Loma High School and the University of Arizona. A journalism major, she started her career as a real estate writer, serving as the editor of  BUILDER magazine for the San Diego Building Industry Association (BIA). 

Jumping from journalism into public relations, she joined a major local marketing firm where she learned the business and grew her media relations skills.  In 1986, after taking a year to travel the world, she returned to San Diego to found Scribe Communications.

Her community involvement includes past directorships at a number of non-profits, including the YWCA, Charter 100, the San Diego Press Club and La Jolla Golden Triangle Rotary.  A graduate of LEAD San Diego and winner of the San Diego Business Journal’s “Women Who Mean Business Award,” she supports several local women’s organizations including Women’s Empowerment and Voices of Women. An avid student of world affairs and current events, she was a co-founder of the San Diego Republican Businesswomen and later, a member of the Finance Committee for Bill Bradley during his unsuccessful run for president. She is an active member of the City Club of San Diego and the San Diego Press Club.

Her most rewarding pro-bono activity, which began in October 2001, is the ongoing promotion of the Rotary Jalalabad School in Afghanistan, which currently serves 6,000 boys and girls.
