Background Information

Sandy Brewer, PhD, is a Human Behavior and Relationship expert with close to 35 years experience in the field of personal and professional growth and development. Sandy is a renowned speaker, author, therapist, coach and humanitarian. She has captivated audiences from Pepperdine University (CA) to Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center (NYC) as well as internationally. She has been featured on numerous television shows including a special segment specifically on her and her work on NBC's Nightly News and a nationally televised documentary on a special project she founded, called A Bridge for the Children, to work with abused and traumatized children

Sandy has been a powerful advocate, especially women and children, for many decades and has spearheaded significant programs to that effect. She was the driving force that got the State of Maryland to change the way abused children were treated in court. As a result of her intense advocacy for a child in her program, this 11 year-old little girl, was allowed to be the first child ever to testify on closed circuit television instead of in open court in front of her abuser. Soon other states took notice and followed suit. 
 

 She was chairwoman of Operation Shelter, a project responsible for successfully opening and operating the first publicly supported homeless shelter in Denver, Colorado, in 1980.
 

Sandy is a skilled communicator and is common for her to receive standing ovations at her presentations. That's the level of effect Sandy has on her audiences. She gets effortlessly to the heart of the matter, speaking with such openness, affirmative information, inspiration, humor and grace interwoven with pragmatic strategies. Sandy is a unique woman, filled with laughter, clarity and compassion, who "talks the talk" based on her first-hand experience of having "walked the walk."

Sandy, with her compelling compassion, wit and wisdom offers a pathway out of darkness into light with warmth and richness. A recent cancer survivor, Sandy understands the challenge of the journey having also survived a childhood of such extreme parental abuse that she came close to death more than once. She chose to use these experiences as tools for learning, gaining strength and wisdom, and ultimately an extraordinary capacity for caring.

She has developed life-changing techniques for healing emotional trauma of any degree and achieving personal fulfillment. This is a gift she passionately shares daily - and one that her life proves can work. She has devoted her life to helping adults and children recognize that they are loved and that no matter what happened yesterday, it is insignificant to what lies within the core of one's being today.

Sandy has lived a life that is a testament to the triumph of the human spirit which is brilliantly captured in her compelling memoir, Pursuit of Light, An Extraordinary Journey, which has won three literary awards. It is an entertaining, soul-stirring, master trope in the art of healing that shares her true-life story of how she came to find the presence and strength of the human spirit within her, and the "how-to's" of choice - and how you, too, can look at your life from a new perspective and create new choices.

Others have said of her: "Sandy Brewer is an exceptionally talented speaker. She is a dynamic force of guidance and inspiration who can truly help people to change their lives for the better...Sandy captivates, instills hope, confidence, knowledge and inspiration in everyone and is the best instrument to touch people..."

Sandy Brewer
Do you have baggage? Of course you do. Because if you're like most people, we've all had experiences that ranged from absolutely great to less than ideal and sometimes all the way down to simply horrific! But it's not the amount of baggage we've traipsed through or even how we got it that makes the difference. It's what we make of the baggage and how we use it to move forward.

Pursuit Of Light
In Pursuit of Light, the points of Light that Sandy Brewer brings out, the points about putting your baggage in its place and letting it support you, and you letting you grow through (them). It's a wonderful read. It is part memoir and part self-help. It is inspirational. And it's something that once you start it you will not be able to put it down. From page one!" --Reviewed by Antoinette Kuritz, Founder of La Jolla Writers Conference, on KUSI "Good Morning, San Diego
