Lena Finkel, Founder & Editor-in-Chief
Lena is the Editor and Founder of Femestella. Prior to starting Femestella, she worked at People, InStyle, Sesame Workshop (Sesame Street) and Tiger Beat. She soon felt like her voice was becoming too watered down by the mainstream sites and realized that if she wanted a place to truly speak her mind, she would have to create it. When she’s not writing, she spends her time obsessing over all things makeup, Vanderpump Rules, and her tuxedo cat Tom.
