Front Desk Receptionist


Hi, my name is Shawna Bray. I have lived in the Tampa Bay area for 24 years being originally from Sacramento, California. I have an amazing blended family having 3 daughters and 6 grandchildren of my own and my husband of 3 years having 5 children and 3 grandchildren. We have a big family! I learned good work ethics from my dad when I was young and know the value of them. I started washing peoples cars; knowing the chrome & windows were dried first; as well as mowing lawns to earn money. I helped my friends in 6th grade to go door to door to collect for the Jerry Lewis Muscular Dystrophy Telethon. I know how to be sensitive to those around me and be a great team player! I am enthusiastic as well as self motivating, taking initiative yet teachable. Problem solving, complaints, troubleshooting with IT issues, and organizing are all things I love to do. I love to help others succeed.

When my manager asked me if I was interested in with Publix at that time, I knew they required many hours during the holidays which was not for me which led me to Dr Weinstock’s office.
