STACY  RAYMOND, PSYD

Founder

Dr. Raymond created Responder Wellness Inc in August of 2020 amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.  Delivering baked goodies to Police, Fire & EMS during "Muffin Motorcades" with colleague Bonnie Rumilly was fun and helpful, but just wasn't enough!  . . . . So she created this charity.  Dr. Raymond is a Clinical Psychologist specializing in helping First Responders overcome their trauma.  Her private practice is in Ridgefield, CT.
