Jaclyn O’Shea has such a rich story that we couldn’t possibly tell it all in this short conversation. She is a United States Army veteran who served two tours in the War in Afghanistan. Her husband fought in Iraq in the Battle of Fallujah. He became one of several veterans in that battle who suffered severe PTSD and ultimately committed suicide.
Jaclyn shares her own story of PTSD, alcoholism, disappearing on the Appalachian trail before settling right here in Pittsburgh to go to veterinary school.
She is a kratom advocate and we are so grateful to be her neighbor!
