About Katie Willcox

As her blog title suggests, Katie Willcox believes that Healthy Is the New Skinny. She created that and the #healthyisthenewskinny movement on social media to fight the unreal beauty standards girls are constantly exposed to. Working as a model made her feel self-conscious about her weight at all times, which led her to start both the blog and a modeling agency for women with real bodies. As the mom of an adorable toddler, it’s amazing Katie found time to also release her first book this year, Healthy is the New Skinny—Your Guide to Self-Love in a “Picture Perfect” World. Inspirational speaking appearances and workshops help her message to resonate, along with a popular Instagram account where she practices what she preaches for 115K+ followers.
