CNBC senior personal finance correspondent Sharon Epperson is back on the air at CNBC after a 13 month absence.
One morning in September 2016, Epperson went to the hospital after complaints of a severe headache while exercising. There, she was diagnosed with a brain aneurysm, leading to emergency surgery and two weeks recovering in the ICU. Following release, she faced months of rehabilitation, including again learning to walk and maintain her balance.
After several months of work and perseverance, Epperson decided she was well enough to return to CNBC after completing the 4th Annual TeamCindy 5K Run for Research, which benefits the Brain Aneurysm Foundation.
“I really missed engaging with my viewers and readers,” Epperson said in a recent interview. “Real life involves a lot of insecurities surrounding saving for retirement, paying off debt, putting kids through college, taking care of aging parents — all while trying to advance our careers. It’s not easy.”
Epperson returned to CNBC with an appearance on the half-hour Saturday broadcast of “On the Money.”
