Jessica Pels

Digital Director

As the editor of MarieClaire.com, I oversee all content and editorial operations for Marie Claire magazine's digital efforts. I previously held posts at Glamour and Teen Vogue, where I edited feature stories for print and web, and I launched an interactive e-commerce platform for a fashion-tech startup. Back in the day, I was a ballet dancer and NYU film student—now I mostly spend my free time trying not to be one of "those" new puppy moms.
