Andréa Grace Phillips is an associate certified coach, family recovery coach, and owner of Grace Coaching and Consulting Services. She is an advocate, speaker, group/retreat facilitator, a leadership trainer for the University of Southern Indiana, a member of the Evansville Mayor's Substance Abuse Task Force, and the mother of an only son who passed in 2017 from complications due to a substance use disorder.
Andréa is in the process of launching a statewide initiative she proposed called F.A.S.T (for Family Addiction Support Teams) to provide resources to both family members and their loved ones at the emergency room level. She is also writing her first book called “Secondhand Addiction” due out in early 2019. Her purpose and message is: “Your Life Matters!” (too), as she invites and empowers others to choose to fully live, whether they currently have a child with a substance use disorder or have lost a child to this devastating epidemic. She believes so strongly that grace lives even beyond the grave, that she changed her middle name to Grace.
