Sandra Younger lost her home, 12 neighbors and nearly her own life in California’s biggest wildfire. Her book about the disaster, “The Fire Outside My Window”, has been acclaimed as required reading for residents of wildfire country, adopted as a training text by top-level emergency professionals, and praised by reviewers as a “couldn’t put it down” page-turner. After the fire, Sandra discovered that personal resilience is both a natural strength and a skill set we can build like a muscle. Combining her own experience with leading academic research, she developed The ComeBACK Formula™—a five-step
system of powerful, common-sense practices proven to transform disaster into opportunity and loss into legacy.
Sandra is now the founder of ComeBACK Solutions Intl., sharing her resilience-boosting message as an international speaker, workshop leader and media guest. She’s appeared on ABC, CBS, PBS, CBC, Fox and the CW and was featured in the
2017 NBC Dateline special, “Inferno.”
