Who We Are

Shannon Salter SligerFounder

Shannon began her career as a model agent in New York helping the most beautiful women in the world find healthy ways to stay trim and youthful.  While there, she became a registered yoga and meditation teacher with I.S.H.T.A Yoga.  Meaning Integrated Science of Hatha, Tantra and Ayurveda, Shannon learned about this ancient healing art of Ayurveda and has continued her journey and training with the Maharishi Institute of America.  In response to a skin cancer scare and the untimely death of her father, Shannon started Dtox Organic Juice and Junk in 2011.  Along with her husband Tim,  she built and opened three locations before selling.  Knowing Atlanta was hungry for more, {SAMA} FOOD FOR BALANCE was born.   Ayurveda's approach to prevention and treatment of disease is holistic and depends on balance or {SAMA}.  When not in the store, you can find Shannon with her family at their burgeoning farm, Green Juice Acres, or leading Cleanse Camps.

Megan Park, Director of Marketing & Retail

Megan returned to her southern roots in Atlanta after enjoying big city and small town living, growing up in Ann Arbor, MI, Seoul, South Korea, and San Marino, CA.  One of her greatest foodie adventures was immersing herself into Spanish culture for a month while trekking the Camino de Santiago, a 500-mile pilgrimage from France to the shoreline of Spain.  She graduated from Smith College with a degree in psychology and has dabbled in the worlds of research, fashion, and assistant teaching until her love for food prompted her to join {SAMA} as the Director of Retail and Marketing.  When she’s not working, Megan can be found traveling around the world, planning new food adventures both near and far, or playing with her three dogs, Sam, Milly, and Bleu.  Follow Megan @megpark
