Samantha Lasater- Business owner/Lice Treatment Professional, Bachelor’s Degree
As a mom, I completely understand how frustrating it can be to deal with lice. I wanted to find a positive, clean, and non-toxic lice treatment option provided by skilled professionals. Because I was so disappointed with my bad experiences, I finally decided to open my own businesses. I took an intensive training program in lice biology and removal in order to create the best possible experience for our clients.
In my free time I enjoy doing yoga, being a math support volunteer at my children's school, and reading about bizarre scientific phenomena. I also enjoy watching cooking shows on Netflix, most of which have recipes I would never attempt.
My favorite lice prevention product is the Heavenly Healing Oil. I use a small amount as a shine serum and lice preventative. When I want a nice deep conditioning treatment I put about three pumps through my hair and sleep in it. When I wake up in the morning I wash my hair, and after, my hair feels wonderful.
Misty Pantoja - Manager/Lice Treatment Professional, BAchelor’s Degree
I was born and raised in Hayward, CA and now reside in Antioch with my four boys and loving husband Luis. I recently graduated from Ashford University and received my BA in Human Resources Management. Previously, I worked for another lice removal clinic where I was able to gain experience in the difficulty of removing lice. Having had my own experiences with having lice as a young child and knowing how embarrassing it can be, this became a passion for me to help others in the same situation. I am now dedicated to working for Dr. Z’s Lice Free and helping make everyone feel a little more comfortable knowing that we can make everyone lice free.
I love to spend time with my family when I am not at work helping others. I am a movie buff and spend a lot of my time watching movies and taking my boys to see them as well. My family and I spend a lot of time outdoors, whether it be at the park, or taking the boys camping. They enjoy being out and about experiencing all that life has to offer.
If I had to pick just one prevention product I like the most, it would have to be the Leave Me Be Botanical Spray. It is easy to spray on myself, as well as the kids while getting ready before we start our day. It helps protect us all day long, and I can stick it in my purse. I bring it along with us wherever we go.
Taszana Thornton - Lice Treatment professional, Trained Medical Assistant
My name is Taszana . I attended a program through CalRegional where I received my Medical Assistant Certificate in April 2018. I completed a 2 month externship at Precision Sports Medicine and Chiropractic where I got my clinical experience.
In my free time I enjoy going out to eat at different restaurants and spending time with my friends and family. But usually, I keep a couple of jobs at a time to stay busy :)
My career of choice is in healthcare, but I’ve always been good with hair care also. My favorite lice prevention product is the Heavenly Healing Oil. It keeps my scalp moisturized while working as a lice preventative.
Desiree Longoria- Lice Treatment Professional, Trained Medical Assistant
Growing up, I jumped around between the United States and Mexico. I attended high school in San Ysidro, CA and through the high school I was able to be a part of a R.O.P Accredited Medical Assistant Program where I received my Medical Assistant Certification in June of 2017. I have done various internships through Kaiser Permanente and UCSD Medical Center. I am currently enrolled in Los Medanos College. I do speak Spanish fluently.
I spend most of my free time spending time with my husband and family. I love to do my make-up when I have time. I also love to cook, I come from a Latina and Italian background so cooking really allows me to connect to my roots.
A lice preventative that I use is the Minty Magic shampoo. I love the way it makes my head tingle and it smells like amazing.
