Hello from Charlotte, NC! I'm Meredith Dean - a community builder, multimedia specialist, career & branding consultant, and digital entrepreneur. Always looking for ways to empower others and highlight businesses in the Queen City.


I'm the Manager/On-Air Personality for Seacrest Studios and the CEO/Founder of The Dean's List. My 9-5 and 5-9 helped me become one of Charlotte's 30 Under 30 and UGA's 40 Under 40 Leaders. When wearing my entertainment industry hat, I create uplifting programming for pediatric patients that includes game shows, celebrity interviews, and performances at Levine Children's Hospital. As a female entrepreneur, I started my own digital branding & career consulting company in 2015 in my tiny NYC apartment. The Dean’s List helps professionals get their dreams jobs/clients by building personal websites and enhancing their online presence. We also build community through our signature events including Dean's List Dinners, Meetups, EmpowerCon, and the 20 Under 20 Awards for all walks of life to authentically connect. A portion of profits go to Habitat Aid Initiative, my family's non-profit which builds sustainable communities, clinics, girls schools, and wells in the Western Kenya area. My mission is to help young professionals in the competitive job market, empower everyone, and to bring client's stories to life in a digital format.
