Prophet had taken several acting classes before coming to Shauna.  It seemed like the price tag was the only commitment I saw in them. Shauna’s energy, spunk, and dedication is unmatched and priceless. She will challenge your child until he or she gets it. I can say without a doubt that Prophet is a more confident and prepared performer. Thank you Shauna... you are Rock Solid.”

I love working with the coaches at StarUR cause they always make it fun!  The things they tell me go beyond just the audition I’m working on at the time – I use the tips and techniques in everything I do.  Because it’s not just about the acting, it’s about making me more confident in all my interactions like red carpet interviews and meeting new people too.  Whether we Skype for my sides, work in person on improv, or last minute phone coaching before going into a producers session – it’s always like a fun game and I get excited about the new challenges or goals I’m aiming to reach!

I can't say enough about Shauna and the staff at The Star You Already Are. My daughter has been coached privately and participated in class settings with this amazing woman and the amount of trust, care, and enthusiasm she shares and in return receives from her students is astounding. There are a lot of people in the Biz that can guide your children, but to have someone who takes a personal interest your kid's well being and achievements is hard to come by. She has given my daughter a sound education in the art of acting and acting as a business. We feel so fortunate to have Shauna guide our daughter through this adventure and gladly consider her an extended part of our family.

• Voice of Lucy Van Pelt in THE PEANUTS MOVIE.
• Voice of Buttercup in Disney’s animated series SOFIA THE FIRST.

We are so glad our daughter Hadley started working with Shauna. Hadley now knows how to enter the room and break down sides. But more importantly is how much love and care Shauna shows Hadley by texting and really being vested in her growth and career. A huge testament to how much Shauna cares for and nurtures her students is Hadley had a next day feature film audition and Shauna was willing to coach her via Skype at the end of what I know was a long day for her.”

The coaches at the Star You Already Are always impress me with how they are so encouraging, inspiring, and have the most amazing skill set out there.  They really love what they do.  We’ve worked on bringing what is special and unique about me to the characters I play.  Besides the commercials and TV shows I’ve been on, working with coaches like Shauna and Scotty has given me an advantage that I bring to the stage when I compete in dance or am featured in music videos.  They constantly push me to be the best actress and person I can be!

I love being in this class and working with this group!
