Meet The Chapter Heads
Rhiannon is a Graphic Designer with unpredictable hair colors by day and a nerdy baker by night. Her alter ego “bakerhi” encompasses her love for making sugary treats as well as occasionally documenting a good read or a favorite video game. She’s a Connecticut transplant from Long Island (sans accent) looking to meet some like-minded ladies and discuss if Supernatural will ever really end.
Geeky Top 10: Supernatural, Baking, too many YouTubers, Anything the McElroy family creates, Various Video & Steam adventure/rpg games, tabletop gaming, Crash Bandicoot, Design & Social Media
Geeky Boyfriend: Sam “Moose” Winchester
Beverage of Choice: Coke Zero, because Scott is a zero. Get it?
But actually a bulleit & coke.
Quote to Live By: Can I say the entire “Walrus and Carpenter” poem? I’m gonna go with that.
Fellow officer Rhiannon’s younger sister, Kat is a CG artist (art runs in the family!) and predominantly a gamer and watcher of television. Despite this, she’s trying to read more; she owns many books by awesome females and feminists that are patiently waiting to be enjoyed. She loves cats, which makes puns about her name appropriately easy to make. Kat is also queer and isn’t shy about it, aside from being an introvert, so she actually is a bit shy about it. Her mission is to ensure that all the geek girls feel #warmandsafe at all times.
Geeky Top 10: Life is Strange, The Last of Us, Parks and Recreation, The Office, tea, queer (esp. femme) media, Overwatch, graphic design & CG, Stardew Valley, Rocket League.

Quote to Live By: “I am a goddess, a glorious female warrior. Queen of all that I survey. Enemies of fairness and equality, hear my womanly roar!” – Leslie Knope
Leah is a Pharmaceutical Process Manager who spends her evenings reading or playing video games (she loves FPSs, RPGs, platformers, and episodic games). When she isn’t gaming, she can usually be found with her nose stuffed in a book. Seriously, she brings a book with her everywhere. Other days you can find her re-organizing her bookshelf, running around Azeroth (for the Alliance!), or binge-watching something on Netflix. A Connecticut transplant from the sunny state of Florida (and not the part with Disney and Universal Studios), Leah is always looking for new ladies to hangout with, whether it’s discussing current reads, if Kingdom Hearts III is ever really coming out, and why Superman is better than Batman.
Geeky Top 10: Wonder Woman, Books, Game of Thrones/ASOIAF, Doctor Who, Star Wars, Overwatch, World of Warcraft, Tabletop Games, Comics, Harry Potter
Geeky Boyfriend: Clark Kent
Beverage of Choice: Coffee. Always coffee.
Quote to Live By: “You want weapons? We’re in a library! Books! The best weapons in the world!” – The Tenth Doctor
Jamie works in Healthcare Administration, but when
she isn’t helping her
friends understand their health insurance, she can be found with a book, in the middle of a Netflix binge, or spending her life savings on Amazon. As the only officer born and raised in Connecticut, she is frequently dreaming of moving back to Rhode Island (she went to college there) to be closer to Ma’s Iced Snickerdoodle coffee every single day. She sometimes curses like a sailor, but she will almost always apologize for it. Other than that, she can usually be found at home playing video games or watching Bob’s Burgers with her boyfriend and wishing her apartment was big enough for her dog, Harper, to live with her (Harper lives with Grandma). Jamie is always open to awesome book, show, movie, or podcast recommendations…and might even have a few to give you too. Warning: She has a tendency to get VERY passionate, which usually results in excitable shouting.
Geeky Top Ten: Comics – especially anything from Archie comics, Memes/Gifs, comedic/fantasty/supernatural podcasts, Books, BBC America, The Room, Harry Potter, Broadway shows, Sega Genesis, Great British Bakeoff
Geeky Boyfriend: Sterling Mallory Archer (Choosing one was the most difficult decision)
Beverage of Choice: IPAs all day (not really all day).
