Claudia Fisher is a digital editorial director on the Commerce News & Deals team at Dotdash Meredith. She's been writing, editing, and strategizing for women's lifestyle publications in New York City for almost 10 years, with a special interest in beauty and style.

Her writing has appeared across most of Dotdash Meredith's sites—including The Spruce, Real Simple, Travel + Leisure, PEOPLE, InStyle, Entertainment Weekly, Health, Shape, Southern Living, Better Homes & Gardens, and Food & Wine—as well as Time and Well+Good.


Claudia Fisher started her career in editorial at a then-startup called Elite Daily, where she was the second full-time editor hired. She went on to lead the Body & Mind section as a senior editor and has since stayed in the women's lifestyle space.

She was a lifestyle news editor on Time's cross-brand news desk prior to the acquisition by Meredith, after which she transitioned to the role of digital deputy editor for Real Simple.

After about a year at Real Simple, she switched over to the newly formed centralized e-commerce desk as deputy digital director across shopping content for all of Meredith's brands, from PEOPLE and InStyle to Better Homes & Gardens, Travel + Leisure, and Food & Wine.

Now she serves as an editorial director on Dotdash Meredith's News and Deals Commerce team, writing for beauty, style, wellness, and more lifestyle topics when she gets the chance.
