Our chiropractor, Dr Andrew Smith was born and raised in the south east suburbs of Perth, and loves to call this city home. Feeling called to a life of service, many of his adventures and opportunities have been the answer to the question, 'How can I improve the life of another?' and becoming a chiropractor with a focus on family wellness, babies and kids, was the easy solution.
He is an avid traveller; 2 chiropractic mission trips to India as part of the Hands on India program; 2 summers spent in the states with Camp America, and pre-COVID, a trip throughout Italy, Austria and Germany with his family.
He and his wife Genevieve moved back to Perth after spending a few years living and working in Kalgoorlie, and their firstborn daughter Eleanor came into the world in February 2021, with Matilda joining the family July 2023.
His highest values are his faith, his family and health, and life mission is to help facilitate the ascension to the best self of each person he is fortunate enough to encounter.
Justine is the latest Chiropractic Assistant to join the team, and comes to us all the way from Coral Bay.
A southern suburbs Perth local, she has recently returned back to the old stomping ground after a year up in northern WA.
Excited to be back around the family, when she isn't brightening everyone's day at Ascension, outside the office you can find her on a beach- her self professed happy place, hanging out with her German Shepherd Tilli "The Blowfish Eater", trialling the latest vegan restaurant, or diving deep into her study- well underway completing her Naturopathy degree.
Maddy is the newest team member and has a warm and grounded energy to welcome you.
She is driven by all things of a holistic nature and has been spending the last 3 years studying Psychology & Counselling at Edith Cowan University. Eventually, she plans to offer inner child & existential counselling services to the community to help others heal trauma and reach their full potential.
Maddy believes in seeing all others as reflections of herself, allowing her to meet people as they are with empathy and understanding.
She is a busy bee working both with us, and also as a barista, so when Maddy isn’t busy studying or working you can find her reading a new book, talking with trees, taking a swim in the ocean with her partner or playing with her Aussie Bulldog named Bloom.
Genevieve is born and raised in the south east suburbs of Perth as part of a large family, and values the joy that family and community life brings. She is a brilliant high school teacher, equally matched by her prowess on almost any musical instrument. After teaching science, music, and religion in Kalgoorlie, she stepped into her her role as mother and business owner at the same time, with Eleanor arriving in 2021 and Matilda in 2023.
One of her favourite quotes, by Australia's first saint, Saint Mary of the Cross McKillop, is "Never see a need without doing something about it", and this has fuelled her desire to always go above and beyond to help all those she meets.
Genevieve is in the office periodically helping run the front desk, and works hard behind the scenes on the admin and social media side of the business, whilst juggling 2 children, and supporting her husband Dr Andrew keep the business moving.
