Rachel H. Graham
President and Co-Founder, MBA
As the President of Healing Springs Ranch, Rachel brings to the table her own personal journey as a family member of a loved one who struggled with unresolved trauma, mental health issues, and addictions. She observed firsthand some of the poor treatment programming that failed to identify the core issues both with the individual struggling as well as the family unit. As a result, she chose to put her energy and heart into working with a team of partners from various disciplines and helped create Healing Springs Ranch.
Her personal mission is to affect change in addiction treatment by treating all aspects of the person and helping clients find meaning and purpose in their lives. Her goal was to create a supportive structure wherein families learn to understand the role they play with their loved ones and how they might best support those individuals in the healing of both the individual suffering and the entire family structure.
Rachel has a long-standing entrepreneurial and corporate background in various segments of the healthcare industry. Her career encompasses multiple facets of the healthcare arena including addiction treatment, managed care, third party healthcare claims administration and pharmaceutical benefits.
In addition to her administrative role at Healing Springs, she is actively involved in the treatment program. She created and teaches the Leaders in Training curriculum, a weekly group, that helps clients identify their purpose at both the individual and community levels. The topics covered during this group experience include: understanding personality type and communication style, looking at skill sets and interests, identifying your own hero’s journey, prioritization and time management, leadership examples and styles, interviewing skills, resume writing, cleaning up credit/educational and background reports, and identifying life skills-stressors that could be triggering after discharge.
Rachel also facilitates the Executive Forum which ties together personal growth and development to corporate leaders in treatment to better encourage peer to peer learning as it relates to the daily challenges of running a business both in and out of treatment.
Her personal experience with corporate America taught her that the same variables that create a healthy person are just as important in the workplace. Much of what she teaches can be implemented in a corporate setting.
Rachel holds an MBA from LeTourneau University and a BBA from Baylor University and serves as a guest speaker and subject matter expert for such organizations as Young President’s Organization, National Managed Healthcare Congress (NMHCC), American Association of Preferred Providers Organization (AAPPO) and Healthcare Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS).
She also speaks passionately about the appropriate treatment for long-term sobriety. Rachel is a member of Young Presidents Organization (YPO) and has been interviewed and featured in various publications including Inc. 500, Plaid for Women, and featured on the Coast to Coast Recovery radio broadcast.
When she’s not traveling and enjoying new cultures and cuisine, Rachel enjoys spending time with her two children and her dogs as well as decorating her environments.
