Hanson devotee Meghan Rothschild MMMBoped personal setbacks into business triumphs. The founder of Chikmedia, her business is centered on helping woman-run organizations and businesses find and amplify their voice through strategic communications. “Chikmedia was born out of years of experiencing sexism in the workplace,” notes Meghan, who is also a melanoma survivor.
From Chikmedia’s focus on women-led organizations to her previous work with IMPACT Melanoma and The American Academy of Dermatology as the organizations’ spokesperson, her national advocacy landed her in the pages of some of the most prestigious media outlets like Marie Clare, Fitness, Teen Vogue, WebMD, ABC World News, The Huffington Post, Associated Press, Inside Edition, NBC Nightly News, and CNN. Her work in skin cancer awareness landed her an award from Cosmopolitan magazine alongside Kristen Bell.
“Owning a marketing and public relations firm that focuses on empowering women is a dream come true,” says Meghan. “Entrepreneurship has its ups and downs, but every day I wake up, work in a creative field and help women find their voice.”
With her social savvy, along with her engaging and enthusiastic online presence, she’s worked with national brands like Dunkin’, Yankee Candle, and LOFT as an influencer and product advocate. The energetic Roger Williams University grad also mentors students at Springfield College, where she is a professor. She’s a regular on WJAR’s Studio 10 and WWLP’s Mass Appeal. This year, she had the pleasure of judging the Miss Rhode Island competition here in Providence.
While “Chikmedia grows every year,” Meghan and her team find time to educate their online devotees. In 2022, they plan to amp up their content creation to have a greater impact on their followers.
“I want people to know that you can take a negative - like my cancer diagnosis and my sexual harassment - and turn it into something magnificent,” Meghan says. “Don’t let things get you down; turn them into your success story!”
