Katie joined Women’s Health as Deputy Editor in 2014 and has held the position of Acting Editor since July 2015. Prior to Women’s Health she spent five years as a freelance journalist living in Paris, contributing regularly to a variety of women’s lifestyle magazines including Marie-Claire and InStyle. Katie has also held roles at brands including ELLE, Company and Look. In 2004 she was awarded the Emap Talent Scholarship Scheme and began her career at New Women.
Katie has been a key part of the team behind Women’s Health’s remarkable growth. In August, the brand recorded its sixth consecutive ABC increase since launch and is the UK’s best-selling women’s health and lifestyle publication.
Katie will oversee the editorial strategy and execution of the brand with immediate effect. She replaces previous Editor Farrah Storr, who was appointed Editor of Cosmopolitan in July this year.
Katie says: “Women’s Health has been on an incredible trajectory for the last three years and I’m thrilled to be leading the brand into the next stage of its evolution. I’m hugely excited about expanding our events and digital offerings to broaden our reach and connect with our readers in new and engaging ways. Meanwhile we’ll remain firmly ahead of the wellness curve so that we continue to offer the sort of original and trusted content our audience deserve.”
Anna Jones, CEO of Hearst Magazines UK, says: “Katie has been an integral part of the team behind the success of Women’s Health, and instinctively understands what has made it a unique and much-loved title within the women’s glossy market. I’m therefore delighted that she will be leading the brand through the next stage of its development as Women’s Health continues to grow both in print and online.”
