Sandra Millers Younger lost her home, 12 neighbors and almost her own life in the 2003 Cedar Fire, the biggest known wildfire in California history. As a journalist, Sandra felt compelled to capture the historic Cedar Fire story for posterity.
Her resulting 2013 book, 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 featured in the March 2105 NBC Dateline special, "Escape: The Great California Fire." Now, as a sought-after speaker and founder of ComeBACK Solutions, Intl., Sandra 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.
