About me

Hello! I'm Samantha, a freelance lifestyle journalist and content editor based in the UK.

I've spent much of the past year writing, editing and consulting for Leisure Kicks, focusing on mind, body and food. 

Before taking time out to have my daughter, I was wellbeing lead at The Edit, John Lewis, where my content brought in more than £600,000 over a 12-month period, accompanied by measurable shifts in customer brand perception. 

I've also spent extended periods of time at Future and The River Group, and worked on commissions for numerous editorial and commercial clients. Click through the links above to see some examples of my work.

I have a first class degree in psychology and a diploma in fashion styling, which occasionally come in handy.

When I'm not at my laptop or wrangling my toddler, I can be found:

  • running by the river (with my three-wheeling co-pilot)
  • hanging from the rafters (aerial circus = my me-time) 
  • practising my jumps, spins and spirals at the ice rink

Think we might be able to work together? Email me at sjmarstonsimmonds@gmail.com.
