About the Havens

Terri and John Havens


John and Terri Havens have found the perfect balance when it comes to owning and operating their own businesses, actively participating in notable philanthropies, and raising three children. They have harnessed their business acumen and passion for expanding companies into endeavors that support the community and benefit causes dear to their hearts.

Terri and John are continuously acquiring, investing and growing businesses around the United States. John currently serves as the leader of Seismic Exchange, Inc. (SEI), one of the largest 2D and 3D seismic data firms in North America.  John continues to acquire new business, but when a personal focus on leading healthy lifestyles inspired Terri and John to help others do the same, the duo was set out to create a ‘haven’ in California.

Terri and John are the owners of Cal-a-Vie Health Spa and Vista Valley Country Club.  Nestled on 450 private acres in a secluded valley in Vista, California, 40 miles north of San Diego, this exclusive retreat has 32 Mediterranean-style guest villas and suites with a 5:1 staff-to-guest ratio. Guests rejuvenate through the resort’s fitness programs, spa treatments, nutrition guides and more.  As admitted Francophiles, Terri and John modeled Cal-a-Vie’s design to reflect the family’s trips to France. This Provenance style is mirrored throughout the spa, which is decorated with countless French antiques acquired during the Havens’ French buying trips.

Cal-a-Vie Health Spa’s award-winning wellness and fitness program was cultivated in part by Terri’s advertising and marketing expertise, along with her natural flair for “Southern Hospitality” and commitment to a healthy lifestyle. With resident and visiting specialists in all fields of health, Cal-a-Vie Health Spa has been voted the number-one “Destination Health Spa in North America” by Travel + Leisure, amongst  many others.

In addition to encouraging health and wellness for their spa guests, the Havens put their hearts into causes that are dear to them. Terri and John support numerous organizations that ensure access to healthcare, education, and culture for all.  From serving as a secretary of ‘I am Waters’ to supporting Texas Children’s Hospital, as well as chairing numerous commendable events, it is no wonder that both Terri and John have received honors for their philanthropic efforts.

Terri and John love to collect antiques, restore historic homes, travel, and spend time with friends and their three children, Prentiss, Davis and Mallette.  Cal-A-Vie is their family’s favorite getaway and a place to inspire others to obtain their own healthy and happy lifestyles.
