Nannette Hansen
Nannette HansenCEO & Co-Founder
Nannette grew up in the Holladay area of Salt Lake City. As a very young child she helped her Mom collect eggs from the chicken coop; pick fruit from their orchard with her Dad and then was taught the art of canning by her mother’s side.  Camping was a common family activity as well as fishing the beautiful rivers of Utah. On her 22nd birthday, her Dad, an expert marksman and avid hunter, gave her a 22 rifle. They were a family striving for self-sufficiency and instilled with a love and respect for animals and the outdoors.
Nannette is mom to six children – four Eagle Scout sons and two prepper daughters! She’s CERT  certified along with her daughters and husband, Dave; has taught preparedness classes to numerous groups; authored “The Family Data Book – Everything you need to know and thought was lost” ; and has held several positions of leadership within the Bountiful community.

Ben lives with his wife in Southern California where he works in the entertainment industry producing and appearing on television programs.  PrepperCon’s entertainment focus was greatly influenced by the experience gained while Ben attended comic-cons as a TV personality.  With a background in law enforcement, Ben also works as a tactical firearms and active attacker response instructor.  He’s also a licensed FAA pilot, EMT, local CERT member, American Red Cross Disaster Action Team, experienced S&R dog handler, and falconer.  Contact Ben for any media requests or matters related to expo entertainment.

Jenny MinsonChief of Exhibitor Relations

Jenny was born and raised in Utah and currently resides there still with her husband and children.  She grew up with four brothers and one sister so needless to say, she has special survival skills that were acquired during those years!  Jenny graduated from the University of Utah with her BS in Family and Consumer Studies.  She has always felt the importance of family and the ability to take care of them, no matter what disasters may come, whether big or small.  Jenny remembers from an early age and all through growing up, that her mother had food storage and large barrels of water for potential emergencies.  This instilled in her the drive to always want to take care of her family and help others as well!
