The Victory Girls
Kate is the founder, owner, and Editor-in-Chief of Victory Girls Blog. She’s been involved in several successful blog ventures over the last decade as Writer, Political Editor, and Managing Editor. She is definitely a happy warrior for conservatism! Kate lives with her family in the hippie-filled Pacific Northwest, is a birder, crazy about the shooting range, shoes, and wine, and loves big hair 80’s music. She’s also a Whovian, TWD junkie, and C-SPAN wonk. Go figure! You can email Kate here or follow her on Twitter, @KateFriarStokes.
Cassy, the co-founder and Managing Editor of Victory Girls Blog, is a conservative blogger who has written for many successful blogs, such as Wizbang, Hot Air, NewsReal Blog, Pajamas Media, and more. Her work can currently be found at multiple blogs, such as Live Action, Rare, and Right Wing News. She is married to former Marine who served on four combat deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan. They have three children: Benjamin, Wyatt, and Ivy. Wyatt was diagnosed with Down syndrome when Cassy was 16 weeks pregnant, and while her husband was deployed. She gave birth to Wyatt while he was in Afghanistan, and their family was reunited three weeks later. Cassy is also the 2013 Camp Lejeune Military Spouse of the Year. She does not enjoy anything in her spare time, because a husband, three kids, and working from home does not leave one with any spare time. You can email Cassy here or follow her on Twitter, @casachess.
Deanna is the Podcast Manager for Victory Girls, and is an at-home wife and mother to a supportive husband and four active children. In her BC (before children) life, she had two BA degrees in journalism and Japanese linguistics, and was a freelance journalist who had a day job in health insurance. In her AC (after children) life, she became a special needs mother and advocate after her oldest son was diagnosed with autism. Somehow, she grew up a conservative, even after living in and around the Seattle area her entire life. She remains devoted to the Seattle Mariners, no matter how many times they disappoint her. She enjoys baffling the local liberals who love to make assumptions about her because of her mixed race background, teaching Sunday school, baking, making cards, cross-stitch, and is proud to be an Army sister with a Blue Star on her minivan. You can email Deanna here.
Jodi is the Vines Manager for Victory Girls, a full-time mom, a full-time homeschooler, a part-time book designer and an occasional editor, who would like to see every last unconstitutional agency and program in the federal government dismantled forever. She received her Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in English and Book Publishing from Portland State University, and resides in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and child, and three neurotic felines. She enjoys spending time with family, bashing anything and everything liberal, indulging her addiction to classic cars, and playing really bad basketball. Not necessarily in that order. When not standing in defense of our Constitution, she’s jumping out of the paths of cars bearing Coexist stickers, and working on her lay-up. You can email Jodi here or follow her on Twitter, @JodiGiddings.
ROS is an obsessively grammatically correct and unapologetically politically incorrect Mom, friend, mad scientist, Papist, and conservative hippie. You can email ROS here.
Jennifer – Growing up as an Army brat traveling the world has given Jennifer a different perspective on many issues discussed on this blog. Most notably, the freedoms we posses as Americans, and especially as American women. Having traveled extensively in Europe and Asia, she has had an opportunity to get up close and personal with issues like Islam’s treatment of women and immigrants influences on their adopted cultures-both positive and negative. She is also a devoted wine enthusiast, a huge Betty Page fan, and a lover of critters soft and fuzzy. You can email Jennifer here or follow her on Twitter, @GOPGrrl.
Nina is a 5th generation Wyoming rancher’s daughter who calls Colorado home. She’s a wife, a mother, a business owner and entrepreneur working with public safety agencies on a variety of projects, and most of all she is a Proud American! For fun she takes to the ski slopes at Copper Mountain, goes to her parents ranch or the cabins in WY, is always trying new food recipes on family and friends, loves a good glass of wine, reads voraciously, is a Denver Broncos fan and a St. Louis Cardinals fan (much to the consternation of her Rockies fan husband), and has a very strong dislike for progressive, liberal, feminist, politically correct crap. She believes the Constitution is the solid foundation of this Republic, and knows that with the freedoms provided through that amazing document comes a duty to nurture those very freedoms rather than let them dissolve away by staying silent. You can email Nina here, or follow her on Twitter, @NDBook96.
Kim is a pint-sized patriot who packs some big contradictions. She is a Baby Boomer who never became a hippie, an active Republican who first registered as a Democrat (okay, it was to help a sorority sister’s father in his run for sheriff), and a devout Lutheran who practices yoga. Growing up in small-town Indiana, now living in the Kansas City metro, Kim is a conservative Midwestern gal whose heart is also in the Seattle area, where her eldest daughter, son-in-law, and grandson live. Kim is a working speech pathologist who left school system employment behind to subcontract to an agency, and has never looked back. She describes her conservatism as falling in the mold of Russell Kirk’s Ten Conservative Principles. Don’t know what they are? Google them! You can email Kim here or follow her on Twitter, @luckycat76.
Gail is a contradictory conservative with libertarian (small L) tendencies. She is a cheerful Calvinist and a married resident of Michigan (West Michigan to be exact) and has two dogs and likes to travel with her husband. She works for a nonprofit and enjoys intelligent conversation with thinking liberals as well as libertarian leaning conservatives. Politically correct humorless leftists annoy her as do democrat lites aka John McCain RINOS. This is her first attempt at public blogging. You can email Gail here.
Amy is a proud Midwestern, diehard Chicago Bears fan that fell in love with and married her US Marine and Packers fan. Happily, she and her husband, Josh, are raising two little Packers fan and a little Bears fan in Northern Indiana where her husband found a job doing what he loves after he separated from the Marine Corps in 2013. She has a passion for football, American history, the Constitution, conservatism, and sewing. She’s an avid quilter who hits the gym frequently. Amy is outspoken, politically incorrect, and unapologetically pro-life. She’s a Christian, a wife, a mom, a daughter, a sister, and by the grace of the God she loves so much – an American country girl. You can email Amy here or follow her on Twitter, @amtay26.
Lisa is a short, spicy Italian girl who hails from New Jersey (don’t mistake her for Snookie), a pilot’s wife of a retired Marine, Mama Bear to her 9 year old and four crazy cats, and corporate radio air personality in exile. She has a degree in Journalism/Media Arts/Creative Writing from the University of Arizona and earned her MBA…which she puts to great use as a freelance voiceover artist and ski reporter in winter! She enjoys tripping up her college liberal friends on their crazy contradictions, laughing at Hollywood hypocrisy, running, skiing, road trips to the ocean and the mountains, a good Pacific Northwest IPA with her hubby, vintage WWII nose art, Japanese culture (she and her family have lived in Japan for four years), 80s punk and alternative and hairbands. She is pro-military, pro-God and pro-life which has made her college liberal friends un-follow her to the point that they don’t even like her cat pictures on Facebook anymore. She enjoys being a girl—an empowered girl (who shaves her legs and armpits) and feels the “empowered women” movement needs a serious makeover (a-hem, Lena Dunham and Sarah Silverman, we’re looking at you….) Lisa lives in the Seattle/Tacoma area and enjoys smiling at the Prius with Obama/Biden on the bumper whilst proudly displaying her “Guns and Coffee” window sticker. You can email Lisa here.
Jenny is a native of Northern California, but now calls the southeast home. She’s a lawyer and a law prof, a former Marine, and a single parent who practices yoga to balance her yin in this yang world. Thanks to the Marines, she’s an expert shooter and can coach a novice into the bull’s eye faster than you can say “climate change denier.” She’s non-traditional in an old fashioned way, and believes in the value of the individual above the collective. You can email Jenny here, or follow her on Twitter, @GirlsGoneGuns.
Marybeth currently resides in the beautiful state of Wisconsin, but her family roots are in the St. Louis area. She grew up loving the St. Louis Cardinals and remains a diehard fan who can be found screaming at the umpires on her TV most evenings. Sarcasm is her first language, but she speaks enough English to get her through the day. She’s a mild mannered caffeinated bookworm who speaks of literary characters as though they’re her friends. Marybeth is a Christian who is rather sour towards religion, and instead focuses on relationship. She’s addicted to Politics, Christian Apologetics, C.S. Lewis, Ray Bradbury, Ravi Zacharias, and last, but certainly not least, Phil Collins. Marybeth is a Coolidge Conservative who rejects increasing government control, and will gladly rebuke either side of the aisle when they become power hungry. If she ever had a tattoo it would speak of her love for proper grammar, and she wears black and cries a little each year when new words are added to the dictionary. You can email Marybeth here, or follow her on Twitter, @mbglenn.
Toni attended the University of Cincinnati and Sacred Heart University. Her professional life was spent at Procter & Gamble in Brand Management. She is a wife and mother, currently living in Knoxville, Tennessee so that her husband can attend University of Tennessee football games (Go Vols). Her son is an officer in the United States Army. Her dog, Truman, is her personal trainer. You can email Toni here, or follow her on Twitter, @toniknxvll.
