Meet the Charleston Officers!
Chapter Lead: Kimi Kinsey
Origin Story: Yup. I have a super hero name. I’m the most yankee southerner you’ll ever meet and that’s probably because home is in South Carolina, but my heart resides in Colorado. If I could take southern charm and squish it together with the landscape (and weather!) of Colorado… well, I’d pretty much consider that heaven. But alas. Here I am in good ole Charleston. I’ve lived here for 4 years and somehow I’m only just now finding my way around and planting some roots.
It always amazes me when I meet geeky people here. Charleston just doesn’t seem like the type of place for meeting fandom-crazed individuals, right? All people ever think of is sweet tea and porches. Well no offense sweet tea drinkers, but I prefer my tea hot, Earl Grey with 2 sugars. The strong stuff – leave the bag in.
After working for several years in retail (most recently for a jewelry & watch repair company), I’ve returned to the world of working from home where I can be creative and live by my own schedule. I spend a lot of my time blogging about geeky stuff I love, home decor, Funko collectibles, and my 3 cats.
Geeky Top Ten: Doctor Who, Steven Universe, My Little Pony, Funko Collecting, Star Wars, American Horror Story, WordPress, Blogging, Nail Polish / Nail Art, Cats…

Officer: Mandy Stone
Origin Story: I’m a super heroine for mental health awareness advocacy. When not fighting mental illness by both day & night, I’m usually found glued to my computer, blogging away. I talk mostly about my love of all things Supernatural and Jensen Ackles related, as well as other fandom topics that catch my interest (& blabbing about her life & thoughts in general, because I likes to talk…A LOT).
I’m also an aspiring musician with a beautiful guitar by the name of Aislin. In addition to being an author/poet (in the midst of trying to self-publish my first book, a book of poetry) I enjoy modeling. I’m a professional daydreamer, & fantasizer extraordinaire! Cosplaying is a passion & fun way to exercise my creativity, which I also do by way of crafting. And I like tattoos. Especially geeky ones. Which I plan on getting a TON of.
Geeky Top Ten: Supernatural, Lord of the Rings, Catwoman, Cosplaying, Geeky Fashion/Jewelry, Geeky Tattoos, Geeky Nail Art/Jamberry’s, Funko Pop!s, Cats/Giraffes/Dragonflies, Geeky Crafting

I’m addicted to collecting Funko Pops and Star Wars collectibles. Speaking of – I like Star Wars and any show ever took place in space: Doctor Who, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica new and old, and Star Gate. Cats… I love cats!

Officer: Emily Wiggins
Origin Story: Hi! How ya doin’? I’m Emily. I’m 28 years old. I was born and raised in South Carolina. I’ve more recently moved down here to the Lowcountry and love it. Lots of special charm to this area. I spend a good bit of time watching Let’s Plays on YouTube (here’s looking at you, Game Grumps!) I’m also married to the best man ever to breathe, Dondi. When I’m not playing one of about twenty ocarinas I own, I’m probably playing with our dog Colby. I also write poetry, sew, and hope I can be as happy tomorrow as I am today.
