Misty Meschter has been professionally affiliated with Pass It On, Inc. since 2012, although her real affiliation dates back to 1983. Misty is the third generation of Pass It On, Inc. and originally worked for the company doing data entry in 2000. She rejoined Pass It On as its successor in March, 2012.
As the daughter of a business owner who works with other business owners, Misty was raised with an acute awareness of the great blessings and potential problems that accompany family-owned businesses. Her specialties include the design and funding of business succession and estate conservation plans, as well as continuing to ensure the success of existing plans, for families who own companies. She is dedicated to building lasting relationships with clients and their families. Her greatest privilege is being a steward and friend to the multiple generations of the families and companies that have become part of the Pass It On family over the years.
An avid athlete who loves to play, Misty attended Westmont College in Santa Barbara, CA with Presidential Academic and volleyball scholarships. She graduated in three years with honors, Dean’s List all three years and a B.A. in Business & Economics. Knowing she wanted to work with business owners someday, Misty sought out experience in management, marketing and running a business.
She spent two years at Lost Valley Ranch in Colorado, a AAA-four-diamond-rated resort, where she created and implemented a group sales and marketing program. In 2006, Misty moved back to California where she began working for Manna Development, the local franchise of Panera Bread bakery-cafes. She was fortunate to gain valuable and diverse experience during her time with Panera, and when she left in 2012 to join her father, she was responsible for sales, marketing and the catering operations and personnel in 18 locations throughout San Diego.
Misty is on the advisory board for Hope Leadership Foundation, a growing faith-based organization whose mission is to provide hope and the tools and resources necessary to raise up leaders from among the children in inner-city San Diego. She loves playing with, mentoring and watching the kids grow into wonderful young people with real dreams and abilities. She is also active in her church, Journey Community Church in La Mesa. Misty still plays volleyball or basketball every chance she gets, and she along with her husband and their Weimaraner puppy enjoy as much time outdoors seeking adventures as they possibly can.
