“Some of my earliest childhood memories revolve around dogs & horses" says Sandra LaFlamme, a Iowa native from Mt. Pleasant, and head injury survivor who serves as President for National PTSD Service Association. "Success through guided recovery has always been one of my greatest teachers and now I am giving that gift to those who served our Country.”
Today Sandra fondly recalls how her grandparents, parents, uncles, aunts, and cousins would all gather to ride & show horses, sitting around in a horse show arena with a judge in the center. “Working with dogs to assist people is like opening presents on Christmas morning—I know the gift of getting out of confusion and achieving success brings the whole family together in celebration like horses did for me.”
In 2016, Sandra and her husband Mark LaFlamme USAF Retired collaborated to form NPTSD.org and plant the gift that they both have so richly received. Helping 100's and striving to help 1000's of lives affected by PTSD.
