One of the first profiles that caught my attention on Twitter was @seattlegeekly, a weekly podcast dedicated to all things geek. Practically every tweet is a topic relevant to my “geeky” interests and contains great reference links as well as humor, which is a serious accomplishment in 140 characters or less.

I eventual subscribed to the podcast on iTunes and was hooked from the very first show. The show hosts, Shannon and Matt, are a hilarious couple with an incredible amount of geek knowledge and enthusiasm. The weekly topics are careful chosen and delivered with the perfect amount of honesty and wit, in a wide range of topics including comics, cons, movies, D&D and anime.

I am a geek girl in heels.  Even on days spent tinkering in the laboratory, I am balancing on top of a pair of platforms, stilettos, or vulcanized wedges.

I have a Master’s of Science in Clinical Psychology and am finishing my Ph.D. in the same discipline.  I have authored and reviewed articles in scientific journals within the fields of psychiatry, clinical psychology, and neuropsychology.

As if spending 24 years in school before I turn 30 isn’t geeky enough, I am a Star Wars, Marvel, and DC Comics fan, and can spend hours playing Tetris, crosswords, boggle, or chess.  Reason I like the holidays: Twilight Zone Marathon.  My heroes are Aeon Flux, Chernabog, Harley Quinn, Big Boo, and Edna Foa.



There is a GEEK inside us all
