Omni-channel creative (Writer, Actor, and Photographer)

Digital Media Expert (Advertising, Social Media, and Marketing)

Women’s Empowerment (New York Times’ Women Network, Google’s #IamRemarkable)

In her early twenties, someone once said to Lopez that she needed to pick one thing to focus on – people had to understand who she was immediately and know why and what they needed her for. Being an entrepreneur with a successful business, an actress, writer and digital expert who also liked to run and take photos of people on the metro did not bode well for this box that apparently the world needed her to be in.

She spent many years contemplating this fact, anxious that she was confusing everyone she came into contact with. She figured he must be right somehow, but the conversation haunted her over the years, puzzled her, and gave her bad dreams at night…

Until one day, she realized that she simply needed to be exactly who she was…following the path that was right for her and for her alone, and empowering other women to do exactly that.

Meagan Adele Lopez moved 12 times by the time she was 12 through 6 different schools and four states. As an adult, she has had to navigate 7 cross-country moves back and forth between America to London, England and Paris, France where she now resides.

She is one who believes that life is short, and to box yourself into one image is to narrow your view of the world.

Digital Media

Meagan Lopez oversees the global digital advertising strategy and operations for the New York Times. Based in Paris, she manages advertising ops and planning teams in London, Hong Kong and Paris.

She started the Digital Lab Series, a monthly learning series for the New York Times, where she invites speakers from startups, corporations and digital advertising agencies to speak about what they are doing in the digital advertising space. It’s an informal, hour long session where people from all international sales offices — Dubai, Hong Kong, Paris, Tokyo, Singapore and London — congregate for a dosage of digital from the outside world.

She began her career in startups, co-founding prominent social media marketing agency, SocialKaty, in Chicago and overseeing social media marketing for the United States’ largest tech conference, TechWeek. She moved on to help start VivaKi’s social media buying arm in Chicago and then to oversee brand relations at VivaKi in London.

Women’s Empowerment

Empowering women is something that is a central theme in Lopez’ life. She currently is a mentor with the American Chamber of Commerce and on the Women’s Committee, oversees the Women’s Network internationally for the New York Times, and is a facilitator for Google’s #IamRemarkable program, that strives to empower women and underrepresented groups to speak openly about their accomplishments.


She also speaks regularly at events around the world – including the upcoming ACT-W’s Chick Tech conference in Phoenix, AZ.

I just finished the book…and it was beautiful. Thank you.
