Community Highlights: Meet Shantele Johnson of TruBody Wellness & Aesthetics

Today we’d like to introduce you to Shantele Johnson.

Hi Shantele, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
I had been an RN for 20 years searching for more career fulfillment, when I was introduced to body sculpting. I was immediately drawn to the opportunity because I knew it was the first step to entrepreneurship. So, I took a leap of faith, got Certified in All modalities, and TruBody by Sha, my first studio, was born.

After my first year, I knew that I had to go full-time, I felt I had to either give it my ‘All or Nothing!’ We just celebrated our 4th year in business and have a new name: TruBody Wellness & Aesthetics! We have since grown from our original one room suite to multi-room wellness studio with additional offerings.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Absolutely not! Initially, I struggled with the transition from clocking in/out, and being a bedside nurse to tapping into and understanding the entrepreneurial world and its culture… The change was gratifying, yet scary! Then I was challenged with balancing the overhead cost of running a business, time commitments with family, change in home life, and the inconsistency of cash flow.

We’ve been impressed with TruBody Wellness & Aesthetics, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
TruBody Wellness & Aesthetics is more than a brand, it is a Movement. We are on a mission to provide a sanctuary for women by individualized Holistic treatment. We specialize in Non-Invasive Body Sculpting and IV Vitamin Hydration Therapy. We have recently added new signature products, expanded our services to include Reflexology, Vaginal Rejuvenation, and Botox, Our Founder and Lead Practitioner, Shantele Johnson, an RN with over 19 years’ experience, is the driving force behind our mission.

Shantele’s 10 years of service in Women’s Health opened her eyes to a growing problem: women were not in tuned with the overall needs of their body.

Each woman that comes into our studio receives a highly personal individualized experience unique to her need, and this make us unique in the marketplace. We are most proud of our ability to create an individual retreat for our ladies from the pressing worries of the world and place the focus solely on them.

What quality or characteristic do you feel is most important to your success?
I have strong perserverance! I do not quit, and I don’t give up on anything! No matter what was happening, I knew what my dream was and I was not taking no for an answer!
