CJ Scarlet knows first-hand how violence can destroy lives. A survivor of childhood sexual assault and rape as a college freshman, CJ spent years dealing with the emotional aftermath of her experience. After taking her power back, she became an advocate for others who had been victimized, running a child advocacy center and serving as Director of Victims Issues for the North Carolina Attorney General’s Office.

CJ, aka the Badass Grandma, has given speeches and workshops at national and international events, and has appeared on numerous radio and television programs, including MSNBC and NPR. She is the author of Badass Parenting: An Irreverent Guide to Raising Safe, Savvy, Confident Kids (to be released in July), The Badass Girl’s Guide: Uncommon Strategies to Outwit Predators, and Neptune’s Gift: Discovering Your Inner Ocean.

The former roller-skating carhop, U.S. Marine photojournalist, and forest firefighter holds an interdisciplinary master’s degree in Humanities with an emphasis on Human Violence and graduate certificate in Women’s Studies from Old Dominion University.

Named one of the “Happy 100” people on the planet, CJ’s story of triumph over adversity is featured in the bestselling books Happy for No Reason and Be Invincible.
