Hi, I’m Claire!

I’m a New York City-based journalist fluent in SEO, CMS, and ecommerce. But above all, I’m a writer with a passion for storytelling.

Currently, I’m a Senior Commerce Writer for PEOPLE who strategizes, pitches, and writes compelling content that drives revenue and traffic daily. My coverage spans lifestyle, home, beauty, and entertainment verticals, but I specialize in fashion and interviews.

Prior to working solely for PEOPLE, I wrote for brands like InStyle, Travel + Leisure, Shape, Health, Real Simple, and Better Homes and Gardens as a member of Dotdash Meredith’s centralized ecomm team.

I spent the first two years of my career post-college at HelloGiggles — initially as an editorial assistant and then an assistant editor. During both roles, I touched everything from entertainment news to beauty awards to sex and dating. How-to explainers, personal essays, and celebrity profiles were my jam.

Before I landed my first full-time job at HG, I was an editorial intern turned remote contributing writer at BHG.com, making Dotdash Meredith my professional home so far.
