Annie Fitzsimmons

Travel Editor & Insider
National Geographic Traveler and Virtuoso

Annie Fitzsimmons has built a career at the intersection of travel and media, most recently joining the editorial team at Virtuoso as digital editor. She remains an Editor-at-large at National Geographic Traveler, where she pitched and created the vision for an entirely new brand as National Geographic’s first and only Urban Insider, focusing on cities, culture, and lifestyle, and was a founding member of their Editorial Council. Her enthusiasm for the stories that can only be found while traveling have captured the attention of a global audience and inspired others to get out and explore the world for themselves. Annie has traveled to six continents and will make it to Antarctica one day!
