Felicity Harley has been a journalist for Australia's leading women's publications for two decades, including a nine-year stint as founding editor of Women's Health. She launched and is currently editor-at-large of whimn.com.au. She has appeared weekly on Sunrise for ten years, has hosted TV shows and events and is a speaker on her favourite topic: health and wellbeing.

She lives in Sydney with her husband, Tom, and their greatest achievements, three children.
