MON, March 29, 2021 – 12:00PM-1:00PM CST
Jen Satterly was an award-winning filmmaker and photographer for 15 years, spending the last three years as Director of Film and Photography of an elite Special Operations training company fully embedded with Navy SEALS, Green Berets, and Army Rangers in large-scale realistic training missions.
During her time embedding with Special Operations warriors, Jen began to see a pattern with those she worked alongside, some of the very same issues her husband, retired Command Sgt. Major Tom Satterly, was also facing with complex Post-Traumatic Stress. She began searching for answers to help them find a way to constructively deal with PTS and its symptoms which included isolation, anxiety, severe depression, anger issues and a long list of medical challenges. Jen made it her mission to not only help the service member but also the families who often suffer from secondary PTS and are innocent causalities of the longest war.
Passionate about helping warriors and their families heal, Jen stepped out from behind the camera and became a certified health and wellness coach to better understand the biology of PTS. Alongside her husband, Tom, they co-Founded All Secure Foundation and serve as co-CEOs. All Secure Foundation is 501 (c)3 non-profit organization serving Special Operation warriors and their families reconnect and heal on the homefront from the trauma of war. Their organization has been recognized as a top rated non profit and has grown to serve thousands of combat families.
Additionally, Jen is the founder of Virago (ve’rago/), a platform for educating and empowering women who are facing the challenges of PTS and a new podcast series called “Homefront: Stories that Unite” that launches April 2021.
Her book, “Arsenal of Hope: Tactics for Tackling PTSD, Together” releases February 23, 2021.
