Speaker & Author
Brandi Benson is a speaker and author, and the founder of the premier employment service company, Resume-Advantage. Ten years ago, after being diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, Ewing Sarcoma, Brandi fought to overcome her diagnosis, heal after her treatments, and to reclaim her life through therapy, physical activity, and other healthy living practices.
After writing a memoir chronicling her experience, she created the Brandi L. Benson fundraising campaign, dedicated to raising money for the Ewing Sarcoma Foundation and spreading awareness of the importance of good mental health practices when recovering from traumatic events. Through her speaking engagements and appearances, Brandi seeks to transform the lives of her audiences by encouraging them to pursue the avenues of therapy available to them and to take charge of their healing. Her goal is to provide a blueprint of strategies and resources for survivors and their loved ones that will help improve their overall mental health and decrease the likelihood of mental decline.
Brandi lives and works in Savannah, GA. She is active in her community, taking part in organizations like The Livestrong Foundation and volunteering time to individuals diagnosed with and recovering from cancer. Brandi is a board member for the Future Minds Literacy program and provides public relations and marketing services for the Ella Foundation, an organization working to aid those who have been affected by violence, mental illness, and the criminal justice system.
Brandi endeavors to bring her message on the importance of mental wellness after trauma to audiences across the United States and abroad.
