Misty Chaviers is a domestic violence survivor. She launched a podcast several years ago and now uses the show to help others. Here’s Misty’s story in her own words…

“Hi my name is Misty Chaviers. I’m from a small Town in Central Alabama. I’m 45 years old and I’m a Domestic Violence survivor. As a survivor I had kept my story to myself for 26 years. In 2019 I was very sick, hooked to oxygen, and I was thinking this is my last chance to talk about what nearly took my life before I lose my life. I decided to start a podcast. I named the podcast I’m a Survivor Podcast.

“After I started the podcast I went on this amazing journey to find myself and figure out what I wanted to do with my life. I came off oxygen and I became a Nationally Recognized victims advocate. I joined other advocates around the country and started advocating online. Then I started advocating in my own small community to help women get out of abuse. I then decided to open my platform for other survivors to tell their stories and I have had several opportunities to talk to women who overcame abuse and are now thriving. I even did a podcast with a Ted Bundy survivor named Kathy Kleiner.

“Last March I was offered my dream job, to be a advocate and case manager and get paid for doing it. I took a job opportunity from a large non profit here in Alabama and I gave up my disability because this is my purpose and passion for living.

“Some days I struggle but that’s okay. So the Journey continues and I’m excited for 2023 and the success the podcast will have this coming year.”
