Brenda Sandquist


Brenda is the founder and executive director for Xquisite, a nonprofit, established in 2012, specifically designed to walk alongside victims of human trafficking, sexual assault, and intimate terrorism (domestic violence) to bring them from a place of exploitation, not only surviving but to thrive in their next steps for a life free from what has held them captive.  She is passionate about leading a movement of strong women who have become empowered to have their voices heard and to shatter secrets they have had to live under, exposing their truth to become Diamond Strong. 


Brenda has worked to empower women for over 30 years helping them to realize that no matter what life has presented them, their value remains strong.  Brenda has expanded Xquisite’s reach to establish the Diamond Strong Freedom Center…a center dedicated to bringing freedom and empowerment for sexually exploited women and survivors of human trafficking, sexual assault, and intimate terrorism to live healthy, flourishing lives.  The Diamond Strong Freedom Center is ready to serve with many services that are free, confidential, non-judgmental with no strings attached, which will bring hope, courage, and a voice for victims. 


It is Brenda’s passion to champion the women and children served at Xquisite, to realize their dreams.
