Speaker, author and resilience mentor Sandra Younger lost her home, 12 neighbors and almost her own life in the 2003 Cedar Fire, for 14 years the biggest wildfire in modern California history.
With journalism degrees from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill and Syracuse University, plus 30 years of professional experience, Sandra felt compelled to capture the historic Cedar Fire story for posterity.
Her 2013 book about the disaster, The Fire Outside My Window: A Survivor Tells the True Story of California's Epic Cedar Fire, has been hailed as required reading for residents of wildfire country, adopted as a training text for top-level emergency professionals, and twice featured on NBC's Dateline.
Sandra now works with disaster survivors, top-level emergency professionals, and other mission-driven leaders to build resilience, the skill that can transform disaster into opportunity and loss into legacy.
