Brooklyn Bagwell is from Marion, North Carolina – a small town with a population of less than 7,000. During her junior year as a fashion major at East Carolina University, she decided that television production was her true calling. Two years later, she moved to New York City and is now living her dream as casting director for Doomsday Preppers. Her favorite part about casting is going to the preparedness expos and meeting new preppers she now calls family.
Filming the web series has been a dream come true for her and she has enjoyed every minute of it – from shooting her first gun, being pepper sprayed in the face (with a mask), to suturing up an actual human. These are all memories she will remember forever. When Brooklyn isn’t spending her days talking to preppers across the country, she likes running along the East River, going to outdoor markets, and having brunch on the weekends.
