Amber Shemansky

Amber Shemansky, originally from Arkansas, attended the University of Arkansas where she had dreams of a pre-med career, however, her life took a different turn when she met her husband, Chip, while on vacation visiting her parents. She relocated back to SW Florida to support her husband in realizing his dreams, leading to their joint venture in founding Gulfshore Chiropractic Clinics.Amber wears multiple hats at Gulfshore Chiropractic Clinics, managing finances, marketing, location expansion, and personnel. Beyond the clinic, Amber is an entrepreneur, overseeing BluZone Organics' creation, which started as organic topical pain reliever and has grown to include natural products like deodorants and bug sprays.

She also teamed up with her husband and their son, Preston, to establish the non-profit organization 'I am Ready to Play SWFL.' This foundation is dedicated to collecting gently used sports equipment and distributing it to families facing financial challenges. Sports have played a significant role in her husband's life, where he set a drug-free world record in bench pressing, and in their son's life, who excels as a dual-sport D1 athlete at USF. Amber believes that sports offer invaluable opportunities to those who might not otherwise have access. Unfortunately, sports participation has seen a 45% decline over the past two decades, often due to the high costs associated with participation fees and equipment.Fun Facts: Amber is also a martial arts state champion in Tae Ho Ru, a form of jujitsu, excelling in both sparring and kata. She often likes to playfully remind her husband that he isn't the only record holder in the family! :)

Her love for travel has taken her on adventures all over the globe, visiting five of the seven continents with Vietnam and Iceland holding a special place in her heart as her two favorite countries where delicious food and unworldly scenery prevails.
