Meet your officers:


Amanda is a Midwest native who is excited to foster the local geek girl community and help it grow. By day, she works in the legal field, and also has her own small business that she’s working to grow and expand.

Well-known to family and friends as a book nerd, she can always be found with a book on hand (and a recommendation or five if you need them!) She has a pretty wide variety of interests and is unapologetically enthusiastic about the things that she loves…and loves to encourage that in others, too.

An aspiring writer, she blogs over at +5 Charisma once in a while, and is a regular participant in NaNoWriMo.

Geeky Loves: Star Wars, books, tea, travel, Alice in Wonderland, World of Warcraft, gaming, Game of Thrones, mermaids, My Little Pony, cats, cosplay, Sherlock, Harry Potter, Gilmore Girls, philosophy, theology, yoga, writing, baseball, Chicago (go Cubbies!), and monsters.

Brunch Drink: Mojito

Samantha is a St. Joe native and is excited to start a new chapter of Geek Girl Brunch in her hometown.

Her dream of being a published author came true last September, when she released her debut novel The Thornless Rose: Fire Blush. She also loves to share her passion for the written word with others through her blog and speaking engagements. If she had a superpower, it would be being able to talk about all things geeky non-stop for hours.

Geeky loves: Star Trek, books, Sherlock Holmes (in all forms), paranormal shows (like Ghost Hunters and Dead Files), KC Renaissance Festival, Cosplay, beginner sewing, Minions (go King Bob!), Comicons, her pets (4 cats and a dog) and too many Anime shows to list.

Brunch Drink: Princess Peach (ask her where you can get it) 😉
