Regional Lead Melanie Weed


Meadville, PA

Hail! My name is Melanie and I’ve been practicing Asatru for five years now, though I’ve been studying it closer to ten. I currently live in Meadville, Pennsylvania, where I work as an author full time. I’m currently undergoing TAC’s Clergy Training Program, and I’m looking forward to being able to further assist within the community as a Gothar. I’ve been keeping up with TAC for a few years now, though I’ve only been an official Charter Member since February. My goal is to help establish Asatru in my own and surrounding areas as something good and recognizable within the local pagan community.

Brown Mills, NJ

Hello TAC.  My name is Andy.  I came to Asatru about four years ago.  I wasn’t raised with religion but always felt a presence climbing in the Adirondacks and Catskills.  I have enjoyed learning and growing in the old ways with my family.  I am a Blackhawk Crewchief in the Army, enjoy wood and leatherwork, and spending time with family and our animals.  I look forward to a future with TAC.

Kyle Reese

Brooklyn, NY

Skål!  My name is Kyle, and I've been a charter member since 2017.  I live in Brooklyn with my partner, and our dogs and lizards.  I study Queer Psychosocial Research at Brooklyn College.  My terminal goal is a Ph.D. in Critical Social/Personality Psychology and to teach college and graduate students.

I was raised in Protestant Christianity, which ended up being harmful to me.  I'm a queer trans guy; Christian beliefs aren't the kindest to me.  I've always been fascinated by religion and comparative analyses, and I was grateful to happen upon TAC after decades of spiritual exploration.  Declaration 127 and the Shieldwall spoke deeply to me, as well as the Norse pantheon and practices.  I have my sights set on the Clergy Training Program so that I can best serve our community.  I've spent most of my life enjoying being outdoors as much as possible - though that gets difficult in the city.  I enjoy working with wood and leather and am always trying to find something to create.  

I'm looking forward to connecting with Asatruar from all walks of life.  Hail the Gods and hail TAC!

Hello everyone! My name is Ella and I'm a curious soul who enjoys acquiring and sharing knowledge.  I am a professional full time artist and business owner, drawing inspiration from fantasy and lore. I am also a full time student finishing up my BA in Clinical Psychology and will be moving onto my masters shortly after...
On a more personal note, I was born and raised Jewish yet found my way to paganism at a very young age. I've always loved to learn about other's cultures and faiths, shutting myself up in the library on the floor of the mythology section surrounded by myths and legends. For hours I would read about G-ds and heroes always questioning and challenging what lay before me. Transitioning to paganism was all very natural and sooner rather than later I found the Old ones. Or, perhaps they found me. Now I am on this beautiful journey with all of you, soaking in all I can and giving all I have back. This past year I have been studying under the wondrous Ivy Mulligan, learning about teutonic shamanism, the runes and everything else in between. I hope to be completing her Seidr course very soon!
In addition to being a Heathen I am also a Volva who runs an eclectic coven of witches known as Bacchans of Witchfest in the New York City area. Thus creating an open door policy for the magically inclined and allowing fellow curious beings to participate in a variety of Pagan activities. I'm always open to having discussions with all sorts of people for I believe there are many paths in the forest. 
I look forward to serving TAC to the best of ability and meeting all of you in the near future!
