My name is Alena Hall, and I am a wellness writer and editor based in Asheville, North Carolina, living the remote work life. I’ve had the pleasure of exploring all components of digital media, from affiliate marketing to social media to branded content campaign strategy to contributor network management. And my side hustles include everything from editorial consulting for wellness brands to teaching private yoga classes. My end goal is to be constantly helping and serving others, and I love exploring what physical forms that purpose can take.
I earned my master’s degree in magazine journalism from New York University’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute and my bachelor’s degree from the UNC-Chapel Hill School of Journalism and Mass Communication. When I’m not immersed in my work, I’m either traversing the hiking trails of Western North Carolina, exploring downtown Asheville’s charming food and music scene, experimenting in my kitchen with new recipes, or cuddling up with my cat Fitzgerald, a cup of hot tea and a good book.
