Our patient concierge Shayna Fischer was on the path to working in the kitchen at a five-star restaurant before a life-changing experience.
“The doctor I was seeing at the time for a sports injury made such an impact on me with treatments I was receiving and I actually changed career paths completely and went to work with that same doctor and became his chiropractic assistant,” she said.
A change in direction
Even though she had graduated from culinary school, she decided to start learning as much as possible about healthcare, which led her to Midtown Integrative Health & Wellness.
“I really love the endless amounts of learning potential at Midtown Integrative, not a day goes by I’m not learning something new,” Shayna says. “In my role I enjoy making the patients experience the best it can be, by going the extra mile and doing the little things.”
Elite level athlete and dog lover
Shayna grew up in Poughkeepsie, New York and was a nationally ranked gymnast and cheerleader who holds four national titles. She loves spending time with friends and family, and her four dogs—Petey, Ruby, Dallas and Dakota. Shayna also enjoys hiking, cooking, sports, playing guitar and crafts.
