LtCol Kim Boehm

Homebound with limited mobility and energy after her surgery, Boehm expressed her frustration with the lack of involvement, support, and communication from leadership and her unit. Her Recovery Care Coordinator, Shawn Housley, stepped up and encouraged her to participate in a Caregiver Support, Adaptive Sports and Ambassador Workshop, Recovering Airman Mentorship and Resiliency Programming and Empowerment in Transition (CARE) event. “Shawn was my link to the Air Force. He called on a regular basis just to see how I was doing and see if I needed help with anything. He knew I was frustrated with my recovery and was the first one to suggest I attend one of the in-person CARE events. His repeated encouragement and friendly nagging finally prevailed, and I signed up for the Adaptive Sports Care Event at Scott AFB,” Boehm said.
