Deborah Stegmaier- Passion for Helping Soldiers

Deborah started her journey at the University of Connecticut in ROTC and studied Physical Therapy.  Deborah was commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant and served as a Physical Therapist for the Army and absolutely loved it.  She was stationed at Fort Knox and Madigan Army Medical Center in Tacoma after doing work in Texas.

We had the opportunity to work with doctors and do all kinds of testing, evaluations and screenings.  We were the TMCs, we saw the military guys before the docs even saw them. So I had freedom to learn and to help these soldiers.” – Deborah Stegmaier


When Deborah got out of the Army she had a rude awakening transitioning into Physical Therapy in the civilian world.  She didn’t have the freedom she had in the Army. Deborah had to learn another way since there were more rules and structure.  She stayed in the Army Reserves and started studying holistic therapy, manual therapy using her hands.

“I learned early on in my career that what I learned in school wasn’t enough.  I was working with people with acute and chronic injuries and pain illnesses, disease processes.  And I just saw that there was so much more to healing that needed to be learned and used to help these people truly heal. – Deborah Stegmaier

Well Being for Warriors

Deborah used  her passion for  helping people and  holistic medicine to  start wellbeing for Warriors,  a nonprofit helping veterans with  PTSD.  Her heart and soul is committed to helping veterans with PTSD, mild traumatic brain injury, chronic pain and military sexual trauma.  

“We offer free, absolutely free holistic services to veterans, active duty and veterans who have a diagnosis of PTSD, mild traumatic brain injury, chronic pain or military sexual trauma.  And we offer a variety of things because everything we do is about mind, body, spirit, and energy because of who we are as human beings. We need to look at the whole person. – Deborah Stegmaier
