Jana Hill: Writer, Editor, Yoga Instructor
Jana Hill started writing and editing professionally in 1998 (then Jana Alexander), the same year she began her yoga practice.
Past roles include editorships at the Enterprise Newspapers (a Washington-Post-owned weekly), the Skagit Valley Herald, and a nationally circulating business-to-business magazine based in Bellingham, now called Retailing Insight. She started her career-life as a general-assignment reporter, for the Snohomish County Tribune, covering education, public safety, and government.
In her freelance days, she landed projects that developed her yoga-knowledge, interviewing Seane Corne, and penning an extensive brochure on yoga-and-breast-cancer, and a glossary, for that same freelance-client. She wrote numerous business-articles for Northwest Business Monthly, a Bellingham magazine. Copy editing has always been the foundation of her career. She also developed skills in marketing, and developed a specialization in health-and-wellness content. In 2015, she applied a soft-closure to her freelance business, to explore new skills: teaching, then dementia-care.
In 2018, she put down roots in physical therapy. She works part-time as a PT Aide and front office coordinator. In 2019, she continues to work in PT, after completing an anatomy-and-physiology class, as well as courses in medical terminology and biology. She is, however, open to some freelance work, and occasionally subs a yoga-class or teaches a yoga-workshop, when it doesn’t conflict with her regular working life.
