Silver Spring, Maryland – Warriors at Ease, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is proud to announce Audrey N. Schoomaker, RN as a new member of the Warriors at Ease Advisory Board. She joined the Warriors at Ease team on January 1, 2018.
Mrs. Schoomaker brings years of experience as an Integrative Health Specialist, veteran, and military spouse. Having served on active duty as an Army nurse and being married to a senior military leader, she had the benefit of healing her chronic low back pain through holistic health practice in the midst of a dynamic lifestyle. She has spent years researching the benefits of holistic health practices such as yoga and meditation, and taught therapeutic yoga as adjunct college faculty. Mrs. Schoomaker was the project coordinator for a randomized controlled trial on yoga for back pain and therapeutic yoga and also helped create a Department of Defense website on optimizing human performance using mind-body skills. She has presented publicly at conferences on the evidence-based benefits of holistic health practices. She is married to Lieutenant General (Ret) Eric Schoomaker, former Surgeon General of the Army.
Mrs. Schoomaker’s expertise on integrative health, experience with teaching yoga and mindfulness, and perspective on the military community make her well-suited to advise Warriors at Ease on matters related to the health and wellness of warriors and their families. Warriors at Ease is honored to call upon Mrs. Schoomaker as a key advisor.
“On behalf of the entire Warriors at Ease team, we warmly welcome Mrs. Schoomaker to our advisory board.
