We had the good fortune of connecting with Sharita Warfield, MD and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Sharita, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I decided to start this business because after working as an Emergency Medicine physician for 25 years I was ready for a change. I wanted to be my own boss. I absolutely still love medicine and taking care of people so after recently becoming board certified in lifestyle medicine I thought it would be great to offer those services coupled with aesthetic medicine. I felt that there is an overall need for people to get healthy and look good too. So I married the two, if you will, and created Serendipity Lifestyle & Wellness Spa, Inc. where we offer the very best in health and beauty from the inside out.
What should our readers know about your business?
I am super excited to reveal to the Katy and greater Houston area, Serendipity Lifestyle & Wellness Spa, Inc.! We recently had our Open House and it was a huge success! I must say that it was not without obstacles and setbacks. When launching a business from the ground up everything that can go wrong usually does, however I remained dedicated along with my team, putting in the necessary time and effort to right all the wrongs until we were finally able to say…Open for Business. The lessons that I have learned is perfection is a lie, if you wait until everything is perfect then you will never succeed. I also learned not to over think things, don’t make things more difficult than they have to be, sometimes simple is enough. I also learned to always be ready so you don’t have to get ready and just in case have a back up plan. What I want the world to know about Serendipity Lifestyle & Wellness Spa, Inc. is that we are a unique physician owned medical spa. We focus on offering a unique wellness experience that improves the client from the inside out. We don’t just focus on weight loss but we address the 6 pillars of health to improve the overall health and wellbeing of the client.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would first like to give thanks to my rock, my husband Dr. Brett Warfield for his understanding, patience and unwavering support through out the process. I love you dearly. I would also like to recognize and thank my children Jade, Darius, Jazmine and Jordin for continuing to make me the proudest mother in the world! They continue to amaze me with their accomplishments and who they have become as adults and young adults. I would also like to thank my sister Monetta and my niece Taylor for their never-ending love and support through out this journey called life. Lastly, I would like to thank my mother Gwendolyn Upchurch, though she is no longer here with me, I am the woman who I am today because of her. Her strength, determination and love served as the perfect template upon which I followed. I love you Mom RIH.
