Sandra Millers Younger grew up in the South where people still swap stories over fried chicken, apple pie and sweet tea. At the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill and at Syracuse University, where she earned degrees in English and journalism, Sandra studied stories—what makes the great ones great, how to find them, and how to share them in powerful ways that make a difference in the world. She’s since told thousands of stories as a journalist, culminating in her Amazon best-selling book, The Fire Outside My Window: A Survivor Tells the True Story of California’s Epic Cedar Fire. Now an internationally known resilience expert, Sandra shares her “ComeBACK Formula: Five Steps to Transform Crisis into Opportunity and Loss into Legacy” as a speaker, workshop leader and media guest. Most recently, she was featured in the 2017 Dateline special, “Inferno.”  Visit her online at
