  • Scott Valentine
    Scott Valentine
    Marketing Director

    When I was a kid I always wanted to be a neuroscientist because the brain has always fascinated me. After serving in the Navy and while working to get my Bachelors degree, I took some marketing classes and became fascinated with the field of marketing at its application of finding ways to build relationships with customers by leveraging neuromarketing concepts. While pursuing my doctorate, I began teaching Business, Marketing, Customer Service and Human Resources classes at a local university. While I stopped my pursuit towards obtaining a Doctorate degree, my passion for learning and knowledge continues. I truly love people, marketing and learning. Married for 10 years and dedicated father of two, I am also an avid reader, love the outdoors, and always looking for opportunities to engage in any sporting activity.

  • Laura A. Marchetta
    Laura A. Marchetta
    Marketing Manager

    After studying Communications with a concentration in Journalism at the University of South Florida, I began my career writing copy for a Marketing, Advertising, and Public Relations firm in Tampa, FL. I then shifted into retail and fashion, even living in Atlanta, GA for 2 years to work in beauty and fashion sales and marketing as well as wardrobe styling. After returning home to Tampa, I worked in sales and marketing in the medical field focusing on toxicology and genetic diagnostics. I then transitioned to diagnostic imaging within the personal injury field. Working in injury treatment is truly a rewarding and fulfilling use of my marketing and relationship building skills.

    Outside of work, I am passionate about fitness, fashion, animals, music, food, and enjoying the outdoors with my loved ones.

    Favorite Quote:

    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

    -Theodore Roosevelt

    Ashaunte Hoey
    Marketer

    After spending most of my life in Cleveland, Ohio, I spent 4 years obtaining a Bachelor’s degree at Eastern Michigan University. Following graduation in 2016, I relocated to Tampa, Florida marketing for Ford, and Fast Track Urgent Care. I fell in love with Chiropractic work after my own unfortunate accident. I now gladly assist with building and maintaining relationships in the Tampa Bay and Wesley Chapel area. As a full time graduate student pursuing my Masters of Science in Integrated Marketing Communications, you can often find me at your local Starbucks studying, or visiting my family up North. I enjoy making connections and helping others, so if I see you don’t be surprised if I say hi first!
