MEET THE OWNERS
After nearly a decade and a half practicing massage, 6 of which were running a wellness center, founder Shalene Maestas-Zarate re-located her private practice so that she could renew her vision. Embodiwork Studio is her “phoenix”. This time with the help of her business partner and husband David Zarate who received his BS in Business Management and currently runs a department at the local natural food store. With a wonderful community of supporters; they have created a beautiful haven for relaxation and restoration.
BEHIND THE SCENES
None of this would have been possible without the support Shalene’s parents, Ron and Darlene Maestas. Ron helps with everything from hanging the curtain rods to accounting and business consulting. Darlene features her stunning artwork at the studio and has influenced their office in numerous ways.
Our office manager, Meggan Foulkes joined us in ’17 after working consistently with Shalene for 2 years as a client. As it turns out, Meggan is not only one of Shalene’s most successful recovery cases, but she just so happens to have the exact skills/strengths that Embodiwork needed to operate. Her support has been a an absolute Godsend, and so her job title is really “Office Angel.”
