MEET THE FOUNDER
Jessica (Jess) Davis is from Stone Mountain, GA, and a graduate of Florida State University. Her passion for video gaming started at a very young age when she was introduced to the Nintendo gaming system by her older brother. Growing up in the household with an older brother, sibling competitiveness was created through video gaming and sports. The passion for gaming continued throughout grade school - college as graphics & games developed, more systems were launched and online gameplay was eventually introduced. As an avid player of online gameplay in NBA 2K/Madden, Jess quickly noticed the lack of female competitors and wanted to find more female GameHers out there, which eventually sparked the creation of GameHer in 2013.
“I’m truly passionate about video gaming, so to create a company that has merchandise while highlighting and connecting with females that share the same passion in a safe space is really dope! The videogaming industry is known to be male dominant. I’ve witnessed this first hand in the tournaments I’ve competed in, and my male friends who I’ve played against for the last 15 years, so my goal is to change the narrative and bring awareness to all the females out there that play too.” - Jess Davis
