Rachel Graham, the Founder, and CEO of Evolve and Transform is a business entrepreneur, leadership and development coach, and an empowering optimist. Having gone through her own personal journey as a family member of a loved one who struggled with unresolved trauma, mental health, and addiction, Rachel saw the need and opportunity to educate people, business leaders, students, and professionals to remove the stigma around addiction and compulsive behaviors (of which we all have), while encouraging individuals to find their meaning and purpose in life through their skills and individual experiences. By understanding the underlying and often limiting behaviors associated with compulsive behaviors, addiction, mental health, and trauma, individuals improve their optimal performance personally and professionally.
As a result of this personal crisis, she co-founded and currently serves in the capacity of CEO for both Healing Springs Ranch, a residential 28-bed treatment facility for addiction, and Life Works Wellness, a start-up wellness digital platform. Much of what she learned in executive development provides a strong foundation for teaching not only addiction recovery but the overall health and wellness of every individual.
She is very involved in various business organizations and has a long-standing entrepreneurial and corporate background in different segments of the healthcare industry. Her career encompasses multiple facets of the healthcare arena including; addiction treatment, coaching, managed care, and other organizations. Rachel is an active and contributing member of the Young Presidents’ Organization (YPO) and a member of the National Charity League (NCL) among other philanthropic organizations.
Rachel’s life purpose has taken her on a successful speaking journey across the globe; becoming a sought-after international speaker with phenomenal feedback to audiences of multi-Continents including North America, South America, Europe, and Asia. Rachel delivered a TEDx speech entitled "Why Addiction is Everyone's Disease." She has been interviewed and featured in various publications and broadcasts such as CNBC, Inc. 500, “The Misfit Entrepreneur”, “Destigmatizing Mental Health”, “How are you Helping?”, and “Coffee With Claire” just to name a few.
