Women’s health is often a hush hush subject – but it shouldn’t have to be. We should be able to talk openly about our problems and any solutions we’ve discovered for those problems.
Davielle Jackson decided it’s time for no more secrets! Through her startup, Femi Secrets, she wants to open up the conversation about women’s health. Femi Secrets’ product, Pretty Panty, is eco-friendly, biodegradable, and safe for all ages – helping women feel comfortable and confident. Davielle hopes to extend her brand to more products for women, and to establish a forum for women’s health discussions.
What’s next for Femi Secrets? The launch of a subscription-based model, manufacturing facility, and growth right here in Buffalo.
