Hi there!

My name is Jill!

I am the new owner of Simple Family Preparedness and look forward to helping you navigate this new crazy world we live in!

We know how hard it was to get through COVID.

Who was prepared for that?

Back in 2012 I dealt with Hurricane Sandy. I have lived in New Jersey my whole life, hurricanes are not something we are used to.

It was one of the worst 2 weeks of my life.

That was the game changer for me.

When they announced the hurricane – my husband and I shrugged it off. We have heard it before – and it always wound up being nothing.

This time was different.

Stores were low on food from all the people who were scared.

We lost water and power for 2 weeks.

I was scared.

That is when I decided to make sure we were ready for the next event. We know more storms – and world changes are coming, so why not be smart and be ready?

Simple Family Preparedness is all about helping you stay calm – and be ready in all types of emergencies. Resources, interviews with professionals, and more will help prepare, be ready, and keep your family safe.

A Little About Me

For the last 15-years I have worked as a web developer and SEO strategist and LOVE what I do. I am passionate about health living and animals – and encouraging people to get into the skilled trades.

While “prepping” may not be a passion – I know it is important which is why when I saw this site was available I jumped on it. I love teaching, inspiring others, and educating – and right now there is no better topic to do this with.

I live in New Jersey with my husband – who I have been with over 30 years, my daughter who is in college, one neurotic dog, and the coolest cat in the universe. I love photography, and love living a simple life without a lot of fluff and extras.

I look forward to meeting you and hope you love what is coming up on the website!

Website Updates!

I am working hard to get all the content updated! So, please excuse the mess while I work on bringing you a much better user experience!

I will be removing a lot of old outdated content and brining in some new amazing content that will make your prepping life a breeze, so stay tuned.

About You!

So, enough about me, what about you? I want to get to know you so I can better help you!
