New Podcast Discusses Recovery at SHARE Military Initiative

Janera Baskerville tells Shepherd Center Radio about her rehabilitation experience

Janera Baskerville planned to spend her career in the U.S. Marine Corps. She was an aviation supply specialist with hopes of becoming commissioned officer. In September of 2015, while on maternity leave, Janera had a brain aneurysm that changed her plans as she left the field to focus on her recovery at Shepherd Center’s SHARE Military Initiative.

“It was definitely a very long road to recovery,” Janera says. “When I came back home from Shepherd Center, I had a new hope.”

Janera joins Shepherd Center Radio for a new podcast discussing her experiences with rehabilitation at SHARE, a comprehensive rehabilitation program that focuses on assessment and treatment for service members who have served in the U.S. military since September 11, 2001, regardless of discharge status. She discusses her new plans for her future, which include going back to school to become a neurosurgeon physician’s assistant.
