Founder / CEO
I rose from overwhelming poverty, abuse, and racism to become the head of a successful company and the Founder & CEO of a national organization called WomELLE in 2014, as a successor to a non-profit founded in 2016. I failed a few times and each time I stand up stronger and try again. Then, In 2014,I found other people who shared the same passion. My name is Naghilia Desravines and I am the Founder of WomELLE, a community that cares for women of all races. Download Naghilia's Bio

Chief Operation Officer
I have been in the army for 5 1⁄2 years and have served in numerous assignments and deployments to Operation. I am a native Floridian pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Science. WomELLE is such a unique organization because while it is about women pushing themselves there is a community of support and positivity rooted within. It’s something I’m really proud to be a part of.
Born and raised in Buffalo, New York; I have lived my life caring for people and helping to change their lives. I believed strongly in empowerment and self-sufficiency. I no longer merely believe in it, I work for it and I make it happen. I specialize in young women and single mother empowerment as well as domestic violence awareness and our involvement in it as a society.
I am a mechanical engineer with Ph.D. degree from Laval University in Canada. I have been involved in numerous organizations, including Community-Based Services. As a research and development engineer, it is my responsibility to develop products that can improve people’s life. I believe that WomELLE is a tremendous cause and a great opportunity to help women using my skills. We are helping women everywhere and empower many families with happiness.
