About the Author


Dr. Stephanie Benjamin is an award winning writer and lifelong diarist. Her experiences living through the 9/11 attacks and Hurricane Katrina directed her towards EMS, disaster medicine, and prepping.

After attending medical school in the Midwest, she moved to California for her emergency medicine residency. She is currently the EMS & Disaster medicine fellow at UC San Diego.

Outside of prepping and writing, Stephanie is a painter, fencer, climber, aerialist, surfer, and proud dog owner of two Rotties.
