STACY RAYMOND, PSYD
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.
Sgt. Welch is a United States Marine Veteran who did 2 tours during the Vietnam War. He was part of the elite 1st Recon, receiving 3 Purple Hearts & a Bronze Star with valor. Dan went on to become a police officer in Wills Point, TX. He moved to VT and eventually became Chief of the Granville Fire Department. Dan feels a strong kinship to both his military and First Responder brothers and sisters.
Dan is a 911 dispatcher for the Bethel CT Police Department. He is also a firefighter/EMT for the Stony Hill Volunteer Fire Department. Dan brings his infectious humor and big heart to our charity, always willing to support his First Responder peers. In fact, Dan was instrumental in securing the Stony Hill FD for our weekly Yoga for First Responders class (which is temporarily on hold due to the pandemic).
