Dr. Lisa Gardner-Phillips is happily married to Trey Phillips, who served nearly 20 years with the Fort Worth Police Department, honorably retiring as a Sergeant in September of 2018. Trey was privileged to serve at the highest levels within the Tactical Operations Division, including positions in Zero Tolerance, the Gang Unit, and as a Team Leader in SWAT. While in SWAT, Trey participated in over 1000 tactical operations including high risk search warrants, hostage situations, armed barricaded fugitives, dignitary protection, and many more.

Trey held dozens of tactical certifications including Advanced SWAT certified, Advanced Hostage Rescue, Tactical Team Leader, Explosive Breacher, Master Breacher, Tactical Rifle and Pistol Instructor, Chemical Agent Instructor, and many more. Trey also performed as the Use of Force expert for the City of Forth, testifying in both civil and criminal proceedings. Trey was a Master Taser Instructor, FBI Defensive Tactics Instructor, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instructor for the City of Fort Worth. 

Trey joined Lisa's medical practice in 2018, and he helped catapult it into a new location and into the premier high-end boutique practice that it is today.

A common denominator that Lisa saw in her medical practice was that out of the thousands of patients she treats, in both men and women, young and old, was that almost every single one of them struggled with some form of anxiety, depression, chronic pain, insomnia, or other chronic health issue. She knew there had to be a better way to treat people.

Lisa no longer writes prescriptions as she did in her younger days as a corporate doctor. She does not believe that prescription pills are a one-size-fits-all solution. She felt there had to be another solution or step before just taking prescription pills for the rest of your life. She struggled to find that answer from her peers.

Thrive Apothecary is a brick and mortar holistic lifestyle store dedicated to bringing the highest quality CBD oil derived from all-natural, high-quality hemp.

Dr. Gardner and Trey vetted hundreds of different manufacturers of CBD rich hemp extract. They then carefully selected 16 different manufacturers based on their quality, independent lab-testing, and their core values. From those 16 manufacturers, they now proudly carry over 65 CBD-infused products of the highest quality in their store.

Trey is also widely regarded as a major influencer in the hemp and cannabis industry in Texas, standing up to Tarrant County District Attorney, Sharen Wilson, when she was improperly prosecuting citizens for hemp oil possession. Trey also spent significant time in Austin at the State Capitol, lobbying for both hemp legislation and medicinal cannabis reform, which ultimately led to the passage of the Texas Hemp Bill in 2019.

Lisa has always been a maverick in Fort Worth as a doctor. She asks too many questions and challenges the status quo. It makes other doctors and corporate medical practices uncomfortable. She decided to go out and find her own answer to the problems plaguing her patients and friends. CBD and Thrive Apothecary was that solution.
