My name is Misty. I am not a “hard-core prepper.” I don’t have a bunker anywhere. I don’t believe in zombies. I don’t forage for food. I avoid acronyms like SHTF, BOB, or TEOTWAWKI.

I specialize in helping busy families who are new to emergency preparedness take small, consistent steps that bring big results in their level of preparedness over time.
