Mass. State Lottery and the Boston Celtics Honor Lynn’s Latisha Goullaud as a Hero Among Us

Special to the Journal

Lynn, Massachusetts native Latisha Goullaud was honored on January 26, 2023, when the Boston Celtics played the New York Knicks.

Latisha Goullaud knows first-hand that the road to sobriety can be a long one.

As a young adult, Goullaud experienced multiple traumas, including substance abuse. Through her work as a peer recovery coach, Goullaud has been instrumental in helping over 80 pregnant women and moms overcome their addictions in the last four years.

Her dedication to the field inspired a Trauma Informed Care curriculum at Tufts School of Medicine, teaching medical professionals what it means to be compassionate healthcare workers.

For her outstanding work in addiction recovery, Goullaud was honored as a Hero Among Us.

Since its establishment in 1997 by the Boston Celtics, The Heroes Among Us program has recognized outstanding individuals who have made exceptional and lasting contributions to their communities. The award is presented at every Celtics home game and pays tribute to the heroic achievements of these outstanding citizens.
