Our guest this morning is known simply as Survivor Jane.

Like so many women, Survivor Jane was a self-professed ‘oblivious-to-what-was-going-on-around-her’ city-girl. She was clueless about politics, the economy and the ever changing weather patterns around her.

It wasn't until she personally experienced life-threatening assaults, lived through several violent hurricanes and watched as her 401k dwindled down next to nothing that her eyes began to open to what was going on around her.

In 2008 Survivor Jane took a huge leap of faith - she quit her corporate job, sold her home (for next to nothing), cashed-in her 401k (even less of next to nothing) and moved to Western North Carolina to learn a more self-sustaining and self-reliant lifestyle.

Giving up the life of eating at different restaurants each night and having her nails and hair done, she began to research how to prepare for uncertain times and still retain her ‘girlie-ness’.

After that, Survivor Jane decided to make it her mission to educate other women on how to better prepare themselves.

She created the website SurvivorJane.com and writes on a multitude of topics dealing with disaster survival and preparedness in easy to understand ‘girl-talk’ that she interlaces with bits and pieces of humor on her personal experiences and discoveries.
