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.

Alysia Stevenson, Writer

Alysia is a twenty-seven New York City transplant currently living in Florida with her boyfriend and three furbabies. When she’s not writing, you can find her watching beauty tutorials on Youtube or Parks and Rec for the millionth time.

Erin McDowell, Assistant Social Media Editor

Erin is a pop-culture-obsessed freelance writer and social media enthusiast. Her interests include re-reading her favorite books, Korean skincare, binge-watching RuPaul’s Drag Raceand trying every coffee shop in a 50-mile radius.

Jasmine Hardy, Writer

Jasmine is a writer based in California who is *slightly* obsessed with all things culture and entertainment. She spends an absurd amount of time watching tv shows but justifies it with the fact that she decides to be productive and write about them. She also got to interview Laverne Cox once (subtle flex).

Ashley Ziegler, Writer

Aside from being a writer, Ashley is a mom of two girls and a wife to a passionate public school administrator. When she does have free time (cue laughter from working moms everywhere) she loves going to hot yoga classes, watching anything on Netflix that isn’t a cartoon, and weaving her way through every aisle of Target while listening to one of her favorite podcasts.
