Crystal Andrus is a worldwide leader in the field of self-discovery and personal transformation. She has risen to become a three-time best-selling author, coach, international speaker, TV personality, women’s advocate, and Founder of The S.W.A.T. Institute (Simply Woman Accredited Trainer)–an international coaching certification school. Crystal’s personal story is the perfect backdrop to be a voice for empowerment. She has overcome insurmountable odds to create a life of joy and purpose.
From a tough beginning—her parents turbulent divorce at age 12, a stranger rape at 14, extended sexual abuse from a family friend, moving out at 15, battling the early stages of cervical cancer at only 17, suffering a traumatic head injury at age 21 that left her to deal with seizures, marrying young and gaining over 80 pounds in her pregnancies, then struggling through a difficult divorce and near bankruptcy before becoming a single mother to two beautiful girls (one who nearly lost her own life in 2010)—Crystal has dedicated her life to helping people transcend their victimhood, martyrdom, and self-limiting beliefs, fears, and patterns.
As a Personal Empowerment Coach to people from all walks of life—including A-list celebrities, medical doctors, artists, musicians, scientists, psychologists, and other best-selling authors and coaches, as well as regular people in need—Crystal’s passion is to climb into the trenches to help those who are ready and willing to become the heroes of their own lives. Certified by the American College of Sports Medicine and Canadian School of Natural Nutrition, Crystal is dedicated to creating health and healing products, CDs, DVDs, retreats, books, magazines, events, and courses.
