Founders Maylin and Christina met through a leadership development program back into 2010. Through that experience, they shared childhood stories, along with adult struggles and personal dreams. The same life experiences would lead them on a journey of self-discovery, purpose, and service.
In 2011, they started with a mustard seed idea of wanting to bring women together simply to connect and provide each other with support and resources. They started conducting informal gatherings in Central Ohio monthly. The vision for these gatherings was to simply give women a safe space to be themselves, connect, and find an outside support system. Through these sessions, they identified the core desire for more support and enrichment based opportunities and access as girls. With a newfound passion and focus, Girls Heart Reading Ohio was born.
In January 2014 Femergy officially was formed and became a 5o1c3 non-profit organization. Femergy stands for Female Energy and provides additional access and support in helping bridge the gap of women in leadership and decisions making positions.
