She teaches architectural drafting and construction documentation to women inmates housed at Folsom Prison! She works to help these women gain technical skills so they can acquire meaningful employment when they are on parole.

Misty has been a vintage lover since she was a little girl, going to garage sales. In her teenage years she began shopping at thrift stores. She says, “My children hate goodwill now because I would go too often.” Currently, she’s taken her vintage hunting online. Though she’s often hunting alone, she enjoys finding special things for her loved ones as well. She said,“I absolutely love gifting vintage to my friends and family. I think I give really bad-ass gifts.”
She explained her infatuation with vintage clothing: “I like owning something that is one of a kind and that has history to it. I have a longing and fondness for past times and vintage helps me live a little bit of it. My husband is a gold prospector and he teases me about how I do the same with vintage.”
