IncrediBullStella - The Purposeful Pit Bull
Influencer / Spay & Neuter Advocate
Marika Meeks is the voice behind @IncrediBullStella - a rescued pit bull that quickly came to fame on Instagram, picking up 30k followers after starting her account just a year ago.

Marika and Stella's story went viral after being featured by The Dodo - which has been re-released several times and has amassed over 15 million views.  Stella is the 2018 Pet Hero Award recipient for the Arizona Pet Project and has published an adult coloring book telling Stella's story, the net proceeds of which are donated specifically to support spay and neuter initiatives.  Marika and Stella are currently negotiating a book deal and expect to keep growing their brand and making an impact on the initiatives that are near and dear to their hearts:  adoption, fostering, spay & neutering and training.

Stella is also the star behind Stella's Rescue Remodel, a reality TV concept that follows home flipping, Stella's activities, public appearances, etc.. and highlights a crisis situation occurring at an animal welfare organization. At the end of each episode, when the property sells, Stella delivers a check to support on-going efforts to rescue animals.

Marika is a stage 3 breast cancer survivor and wasn't expected to survive.  She is determined to live life to it's fullest and pursue all her dreams with the second chance at life she has been given.  When not advocating for animal welfare, Marika enjoys being outside in beautiful Arizona, working out, dancing and inspiring others to live in the moment.  Prior to Stella, Marika has been a life long entrepreneur creating two multi-million dollar companies.
