She is a freelance writer of 13 years, with columns and bylines in outlets like Harvard Business Review, Forbes, FastCompany, Inc, Elle, Shondaland, Marie Claire, Entrepreneur, and more. She is the collaborator of the book, Microtrends Squared, that was released March 20, 2018 with Simon & Schuster. She speaks and trains on bragging better, the importance of women talking positively about professional accomplishment, and trends and content in media, particularly among millennials. Meredith is the host of the new podcast It Never Gets Old.
Fineman founded FinePoint seven years ago to blend digital strategy in public relations, and then led the company as a PR firm. Noticing that there wasn’t a cohesive offering for personal brand, visibility, voice, and individual representation, she pivoted the company to address these concerns.
Fineman’s humor and relatability make her a popular voice for millennial audiences. She has spoken at Stanford University, The University of Pennsylvania, George Washington University, Georgetown University, and at conferences like the UN Foundation’s Girl Up! Annual summit and the Philadelphia Women’s Conference, for audiences from 50 to 1500.
Fineman also has over 12 years of event experience, having organized events in New York, Washington D.C., and Los Angeles. Fineman created Celebrating DC Women in Technology, a viral party that stemmed from an advocacy campaign for better gender ratios in write-ups of powerful people in Washington D.C. Her partners included Google, WeWork, and Pandora, and the event received national coverage. She runs Women Write Washington, a lecture and book party series for women authors.
In addition to FinePoint, Fineman co-founded Hillary Scrunchies with her best friend, a hair accessory company that went viral during the 2016 presidential election, and consign + co™ , a vintage clothing consignment consultancy that emphasizes the need to reduce our carbon footprint. A comedian at heart, Fineman has founded several female-centric humor sites, including Fifty First (J)Dates, which won national acclaim and attention, and Girls Aren’t Funny.
Fineman received a BA in Communications & Hispanic studies from the University of Pennsylvania, where she graduate Magna Cum Laude. She is a member of professional and networking organizations like The List and Summit Series. She resides in Washington, DC.
