Helaina Hovitz

I’m an editor, journalist, author, co-founder, consultant, creative strategist, and native New Yorker who has always had the unreasonable notion that I can help change the world.

My greatest passion is writing inspiring stories about charities, social good, nonprofits, social issues, animal rescue, mental health, and recovery, though I also write about the lighter things in life, like food, wellness, and culture.

My continuing bylines can be found in over 50 publications including:

The New York Times,  Salon,  Glamour,  The New York Observer,  VICE,  Women’s Health,  Teen Vogue, Newsday,  Forbes,  Thrillist,  HEALTH,  Gothamist,  Recovery.Org,  Brooklyn Magazine,  Downtown Magazine,  Huffington Post,  Bustle,  Newsweek,  xoJane,  Prevention,  Reader’s Digest,  The Daily Meal, Workit Health,  SELF,  TODAY.COM,  The Week,  Fox News Health,  PsychCentral,  The Fix,  Women’s Health,  The Advocate,  Fast Company, Edible,  Tasting Table, and more.

I also love helping people figure out how to discover and deliver the positive and hopeful narratives within their own brand. 

If you’re looking for ways to engage a social media audience with a positive story in an organic way, write approachable and intriguing copy, or figure out how to strategize your next big campaign, I’m your girl.
If you don’t know what the story is, I can help you find it—and make it great.

I’m the author of the memoir After 9/11

Which has been covered by CBS, PBS Newshour, The TODAY Show, 1010Wins, PEOPLE, New York 1, WPIX11, The Atlantic, Psych Central, SHAPE, Epoch Times, CTV (Canada) The Australian TODAY Show, VOX News, and Scholastic Magazine and many others.
