Tattoo Laser Technician
Sam Schildgen grew up in Colleyville, Texas, where he graduated from Grapevine High School in 2006. In 2011 he completed a bachelor’s degree in general business from Hawaii Pacific University. As a teenager he was on the Junior National Triathlon team and was one of the top young cyclists in the country. As most young adults today, he appreciates tattoos and is impressed by quality artwork. However, with the current popularity of tattoos, he recognized that some people may later decide to change or remove their body art. As a result, he completed extensive training in laser tattoo removal and now helps clients eliminate their ink.
Joann Brawner, M.A., grew up in Texas and is the proud mom of two young men. For the past 20 years, she has worked as a hairstylist/salon owner.

She too will be working at both the Physicians Weight Loss Center and Calista. Joann enjoys working with people and finds it very rewarding to help them accomplish their cosmetic and aesthetic goals.
Dan Schildgen grew up in the north suburbs of Chicago. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in biology from The University of South Florida. Dan spent his entire career in veterinary pharmaceuticals with two companies that specialized in allergy and dermatology. He founded Vet Solutions, a successful Animal Health Company with worldwide sales that was ultimately acquired by Vetoquinol, an Animal Health Company based in Lure, France. Recently, he opened the Physicians Weight Loss Center in Colleyville (adjacent to Calista). “The idea to open Calista became a natural fit since the demographics are virtually identical between weight loss and aesthetics clients,” Dan said. His greatest satisfaction is “helping people feel more confident about their appearance, ultimately seeing them become happier and more outgoing. As a result, they lead more active and healthier lifestyles.”
