Samantha Simmonds
Samantha has a first class degree in psychology and a diploma in fashion and personal styling. After entering the magazine industry as a fashion stylist and journalist in 2015, she joined the woman&home team in 2016, where she rediscovered her passion for psychology and science writing and began to specialise in health journalism.
She has gone on to write health and wellness features for a range of titles. She’s interviewed Olympic athletes – and wobbled around on a FloatFit board – for Healthy, explored the Japanese way to wellness for Top Santé, everyday creativity for Health & Wellbeing and natural ways to slash stress for Women’s Health. But she always finds her way back to the woman&home and woman office!
Covering everything from parenting tips to pet wear – via psychic workshops and styling tips – Samantha also writes fashion, beauty, news and lifestyle stories for a variety of other publications, including Refinery29, Cosmopolitan, Yahoo, CelebsNow, What’s On TV, Good Housekeeping and GoodtoKnow.
She also works as an editorial copywriter in the content marketing sector, using the know-how she’s gained as a health journalist to help Holland & Barrett customers choose the right health supplements and encourage John Lewis clients to lace up their running shoes.
Her free time is mostly spent tying herself up in knots at aerial yoga, silks and hoop classes, or soutenu-ing across the dance floor at ballet. You can follow her on Instagram @sam_muses.
