NEW YORK, NY – January 28, 2016 – SheKnows Media, a leading women’s media company with 92.5 million unique visitors per month* and a total reach of 256 million social media fans, today announced that award-winning actor and entrepreneur Sarah Michelle Gellar, already announced as being a part of the #BlogHer16: Expert Among Us Advisory Board, is also the newest addition to the conference’s keynote lineup.
Gellar joins previously announced keynote speaker “The Big Bang Theory” actor, neuroscientist and STEM education advocate Mayim Bailik. #BlogHer16: Experts Among Us, expected to attract more than 3,000 content creators, social media influencers, entrepreneurs, brand executives and industry luminaries this year, is produced by SheKnows Media and will take place at the JW Marriott L.A. LIVE.
Gellar is best known for lead roles in “All My Children,” “Buffy The Vampire Slayer,” “Ringers,” “The Crazy Ones,” “Cruel Intentions,” and now as a part of the Star Wars franchise via the Rebels animated series. Onstage at #BlogHer16: Experts Among Us, she will discuss her journey from Emmy Award-winning teen actor to iconic onscreen action hero to her most recent evolution: co-founder of a venture-backed start-up. In October 2015, Gellar launched culinary lifestyle brand Foodstirs with her two co-founders, Galit Laibow and Gia Russo. One month later as a featured keynote speaker, she brought the backstory of developing Foodstirs to #BlogHerFood15, the world’s largest conference for food content creators.
“We could not be more thrilled to welcome Sarah Michelle back to our stage, this time as a keynote speaker at #BlogHer16: Experts Among Us,” said Elisa Camahort Page, Chief Community Officer, SheKnows Media. “She is a born storyteller, and her stories are relevant and resonate, whether discussing being a woman in Hollywood, the consuming passion it takes to start a business, or the creative process and balancing act all of her many pursuits require.”
Gellar recently joined SheKnows Media’s Experts Among Us program to share content about educating and engaging children in the kitchen with the 92.5 million women who visit SheKnows Media’s sites each month.
“It was an amazing experience speaking and attending the #BlogHerFood conference last fall. The spirit of women supporting women was inspiring. I am honored the team thought of me to keynote #BlogHer16: Experts Among Us in August to share what I’ve learned with more of the incredible SheKnows Media community,” said Sarah Michelle Gellar, Foodstirs CEO and Co-Founder.
