Upon writing Backwards, old wounds that she thought she had overcome were re-opened. Witnessing domestic violence at an early age rendered her unable to have healthy boundaries and maintain healthy relationships. It kept her justifying behaviors of her others in her life that she knew were unjustifiable. When she discovered her true worth, she took a stand. She empathizes with persons who are those who were struggling with domestic violence. Andrée spends her time between her family, ministry, the arts, writing, as well as, working with women in recovery, speaking against domestic violence, bullying and advocating for children in foster care.
