Samantha Skelly is an entrepreneur, motivational speaker, best-selling author, and emotional eating expert. As a leading authority on disordered eating and body image issues, Samantha has made it her life’s mission to empower women to overcome their struggles with food and body so that they can live happy, authentic, and fulfilling lives. Samantha’s mission was realized in 2014, when she founded Hungry for Happiness, a movement to support women around the world who are battling disordered eating and body image issues. Hungry for Happiness provides accessible and affordable recovery resources to those suffering in silence. Through her program, Samantha has revolutionized the weight loss industry by challenging the “Band-Aids for bullet wounds” methodology that has long been the industry standard. She works with clients to examine the individual and underlying causes of eating disorders, and in doing so, has transformed the lives of countless women around the world by helping them conquer their food and body related issues once and for all. Author of the recent best-seller, Hungry for Happiness: One Woman’s Guide From Fighting Food to Finding Freedom, Samantha continues to spread her message and inspire thousands of people through her program, worldwide international retreats, motivational speaking engagements, and the Hungry for Happiness podcast. Samantha has had the privilege of sharing her mission on an international platform, with appearances on Global TV, Shaw, NBC, and, CBC. In 2013, Samantha was awarded “Top 24 under 24,” and in 2014, she was named a finalist for “Best Emerging Entrepreneur” by Small Business BC. A native of Vancouver, British Columbia, Samantha currently resides in San Diego, California. She supports initiatives that aim to prevent and stop human trafficking and donates a portion of Hungry for Happiness profits to help rescue and reintegrate trafficking victims in Cambodia and North America. When she’s not challenging the weight loss industry or transforming lives, Samantha can usually be found indulging in tacos, playing on slip and slides, or pole dancing.Read more Read less
