In this week's Practitioner Spotlight we talked to Shauntavia who is licensed in California and Texas. She is new to our staff and we are so happy to have her on our team! 

Briefly describe what you do all day.

A typical day for me starts with a good breakfast, it's my favorite meal of the day. Oatmeal with fruit, breakfast tacos (hugely popular in TX) or French toast... are some of my faves. Then I usually walk my dog. I have a Yorkie named Jagger who is full of energy, and very spoiled. When I'm not seeing patients, my husband and I enjoy exploring nearby shops, art galleries and restaurants in our neighborhood. We also love to travel.

What’s the best thing about your job?

 The best thing about my job is connecting with people and empowering them realize their own potential, overcome an obstacle or see the positive in any situation. 

What’s been one of your proudest moments working at SpaKinect?

My proudest moments come when I can approve a patient for a treatment that will not only offer a physical change but enhance their lives socially and emotionally.  When I know that the result of such treatment will improve self-confidence and encourage patients to live their most optimal lives is when I know I am in the right position. 

Fill in the blank: I once met…

Chris Martin at midnight in Washington DC at the Lincoln Memorial. After dinner celebrating a friends birthday, we decided to explore the monuments after dark. Well, Chris Martin and his entourage had the same idea and we walked right up to him and casually said "Hey Chris Martin". He was very nice. He even sang happy birthday to my friend. We were literally inside the Lincoln monument and his voice echoed across the pond. It was pretty awesome. 

What’s the song that best describes your personality?
