Robyn Priebe
Steampunk Society of Vermont, Ltd.
Board of Directors President

Robyn, stepped into the role of Board of Directors President after serving on the Steampunk Society Board since 2015.  Robyn’s involvement with the non-profit stemmed from her interest in the steampunk genre since 2009.  Stumbling upon a steampunk MeetUp group created by Steampunk Society of VT founder, Sabrina Smith, Robyn found herself quickly involved in festival planning and non-profit development. In her “real life” Robyn is the full time Clinical Dietitian at Springfield Hospital.  In her free time, Robyn is a fan of attending concerts, playing piano, working on artistic endeavors from stained glass, to sewing, to welding, practicing American Sign Language, gardening, and spending time with her rescue dogs.

Kimberly Plourde
Steampunk Society of Vermont, Ltd.
Board of Directors Vice President & Secretary

Kimberly accidentally stumbled onto the existence of the Vermont Steampunk Society; immediately signed up to volunteer for the very first Festival and never left.  She took a position managing the workshops and panels for the Festival and loves meeting all of the great people Steampunk brings into her life and always learning new and interesting things! She believes in the power of fiction to bring people together. She keeps her free time busy with renaissance faires, the Society for Creative Anachronism, board games, conventions, geeky things and a large network of friends. These balance out her boring office job!
Daniel Moran
Steampunk Society of Vermont, Ltd.
Board of Directors Director of Operations

After his friends threw him a Steampunk Birthday party in 2009 Daniel has been hooked on steampunk culture and art. After he and his Wife Sarah relocated from Louisville KY Danny was happy to stumble upon a giant window display in Springfield Vt announcing the impending Springfield VT Steampunk Festival.

He volunteered directing parking the first year then took on the role of entertainment director for the 2016 festival. Daniel has a background in construction and facility management. He currently works as a project manager for D.A.L. Construction Services and brings his talent for building and management to his new role as Director of Operations.

Sabrina Smith
Steampunk Society of Vermont, Ltd.
Co-Founder, Past Director, and Current WebMistress
Sabrina is a co-founder of the Steampunk Society of Vermont, Ltd. (est. 2015) and the Springfield Vermont Steampunk Festival. She was the Coordinator of the Festival for two years - 2015 and 2016. Sabrina excitedly passed on the torch of Coordinator starting with the 2017 season to Jennifer Ucci and plans to continue contributing to the Society and the Festival by designing and maintaining both websites. Although having lived a gypsyesque bohemian lifestyle for most of her adult life, she decided to settle down in 2011 when her son and daughter-in-law invited her and her little dog Lucy to move to Vermont to live near her four grandkids. She ended up meeting her life partner, Gary, within a few months and became a Springfield resident. Vermont is now her forever home and she has not regretted settling down here. Having gone through culture shock upon moving to Vermont from the Bay Area of California she finally found her way to community work and has made lifelong friends. The Steampunk Festival was a way to hopefully contribute in some way to the economic development of Springfield by having an annual event that would bring people from all over New England into Springfield. Sabrina's job that pays the bills is as the Office Manager for Attorney Barry Polidor in Springfield. She also works part-time as a reporter for the Springfield Reporter. Writing is her first love and she thoroughly enjoys the research, the interviews, and the pulling together of that information into an article that she hopes each week will actually be read by people and that they enjoy learning more about subjects that matter to them. In her spare time, she hopes to once again work on her screenplay that she has been working on for quite a few years now and to one day finish it. She and Gary enjoy watching television programs together, taking long drives in nice weather, sitting on their front porch reading during warm weather, going out to eat weekly, and working on home projects. Yes, that bohemian lifestyle seems to be far away these days - and that's okay!
