Welcome to the Officers Page for HPA-DC
CHAPTER ORGANIZER: RANDI SAUNDERS
Randi Saunders is a proud Gryffindor and literary enthusiast. She hails from Long Island, NY and moved to DC for college which was *almost* as exciting as she imagines Hogwarts might have been. She is a former victim advocate who now works in HIV/AIDS, and is a regular participant in National Novel Writing Month. Randi is a previous HPA volunteer, having served as a member of the organization’s Fundraising Team and as Events Team Leader between 2010 and 2012. She enjoys writing, cupcakes, nail polish, and all things feminist.
DIRECTOR OF MEMBER ENGAGEMENT: SHARON BURK
Sharon Burk is a New Jersey native who came to DC for college and has been here for about four years. She came to the HPA through online engagement and was an early member of the DC chapter. Sharon is a proud Slytherin who enjoys cheering on the US National Soccer Teams, and saw Star Wars twice on the day it came out in theaters.
DIRECTOR OF LOGISTICS: JANE BILLINGER
Jane Billinger is a native Kansan who currently calls the District her home. A librarian by trade, Jane enjoys fighting the patriarchy and inequality by stating her facts louder than everyone else in the room. When she isn’t screaming about the gender wage gap, this Ravenclaw refuels on tacos, reads fiction of all genres and people watches at her local farmers market.
DIRECTOR OF FINANCE: BEVERLEY McGAUGHAN
Beverley McGaughan was born in New Jersey but spent most of her childhood in Europe before moving to the DC area in 2000. She is a proud Ravenclaw who found the HPA through Nerdfighteria after watching John and Hank’s educational channel, Crash Course. Though environmental activism is her priority, she is excited to be a part of all the HPA’s amazing campaigns, from Accio Books to Protego. Beverley enjoys most nerdy things, outdoor activities, and will never say ‘no’ to a cup of tea.
