Director Social Media – Briana Ford
Director Merchandise Manager – Carissa Amici
Hi everyone! I’m Carissa and I am the Director Merchandise Manager for 2019. I joined Ladies Who Geek a few years ago because I wanted to find more ladies who loved a lot of the same video games, Sci-Fi and Fantasy shows/movies as me. I have a lot of favorite fandoms such as Rick and Morty, Firefly, and Uncharted, but the one my friends know I love the most (and the one I have the most memorabilia from) is Star Wars. I look forward to helping the organization as best I can and meeting a lot of new friends in 2019.
President – Danita Rambo
Danita Rambo is a Technology Project & Product Manager in Dallas, Texas. A native of Ft. Worth, TX, Danita transitioned to Dallas over a decade ago. Previously she volunteered with the Dallas Junior Chamber of Commerce managing special events, working with companies to throw corporate parties and company wide events.
Too many interests and not enough people. Danita Rambo is a digital do-all-the-things-er, geek, and on her way to being Catwoman. Besides being a dork and squee-ing over Doctor Who, Danita loves to read. She may have a book fort in her home.
Director Volunteer Manager – Erin Messick
Erin Rita Messick- scientist, professor, anime nerd, gamer. She has perfected the mix of pinup and cosplay – a true Geek Chic Queen. Her degree and background is in cancer Immunology and biomedical research, but her passion is with volunteering and community service work. By daylight, Erin works for a major nonprofit, helping girls across the Dallas area by day. By moonlight – she loves conventions, gaming nights, and hanging with geeky friends.
Web Manager – Jessica Banke
Jessica joined Ladies Who Geek in January 2018. Throughout the year, she had a great time connecting with geeky women at various brunches, happy hours, and board game nights, so she decided to join LWG as a board member for 2019. Outside of LWG, she’s a Salesforce Analyst at GM Financial who watches anime, plays tabletop, listens to EDM/Indie music, and attends cons in her free time. She loves being part of a community of smart, passionate women and looks forward to another great year with everyone!
