Jessica Fleming

Senior Commerce Editor, Health Group



Jessica has more than fifteen years of experience as a writer and editor and has worked for iconic brands such as Parade Magazine, WW (formerly Weight Watchers), Rachael Ray, and David Letterman. She’s written about health, fitness, food, beauty and interviewed hundreds of celebrities. Her writing has appeared in The Washington Post, Good Housekeeping, and the New York Times.

While at Weight Watchers International, Jessica managed social media for the entire U.S. brand, directed their blogger network and penned a weekly fitness column that was translated into multiple languages.

As the Social Media Manager for Parade Media Group, Jessica successfully bridged print, online and social media to tell cohesive, compelling and engaging stories. Her most glamourous workday ever was when she live-tweeted from the Oscars red carpet.

Her healthcare writing won an Honorable Mention from The America Society of Journalists and Authors (ASJA) in 2022.

Jessica is an Ironman athlete, three-time marathoner and once ran up all 1,860 steps to the top of the Empire State Building. She continues to have a passion for fitness, but, these days, her main form of exercise is chasing around her four young sons.


Jessica received her Bachelor's Degree in Media Studies from The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. She's also taken creative and non-fiction writing classes from New York University and The New School.
