Shanna Butler, PTA, LMP
LOCATION: SPT – Bellevue
I was born in Spokane, Washington to a Navy brat mother and machinist/welder father and they taught me about the importance of hard work, dedication and compassion for others. I also learned how to adapt to new surroundings with how much we moved after my parents divorced. You can put me anywhere, and I will make my way! Being out of your comfort zone can be scary but, it is how you evolve and grow. I love to learn new things, see new places and meet new faces. I have traveled most of the U.S. (still need to make it to NYC!) and am determined to see Europe, especially Spain and Italy and travel to Australia/New Zealand one day is a must. I am happily married to my soulmate and partner in crime, Chris who is a master carpenter and superintendent and we have an amazing wiener dog, Boozer; our only child currently! We love to go exploring and acquire unique antiques from the places we go. I am kind of a wreck in the kitchen but luckily my husband has helped to make me a better cook. I am very self-driven when it comes to my health and fitness, so I exercise 4 to 5 days a week at home. My workouts vary from weightlifting and HIIT training to yoga and as many outdoor activities as weather will allow! I like to keep my body guessing and prevent boredom. Sometimes the hardest part is just showing up and doing something for yourself; that’s why I push play every time! It feeds my soul and keeps me as the fun-loving, caring, open, honest, loyal, passionate, sweet and silly chick that I am! I love classic TV shows like Cheers and MASH; my guilty pleasure is reality TV, particularly, the Real Housewives. I won’t be watching the Kardashians anytime soon, however.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you meet your therapy goals to live your best life!!
