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.
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.
Jo is excited to be apart of the Ascension Chiropractic Assistant team, and comes on board with such an incredible energy to help support our people on their health journey.
Her past role was a practice manager and lab technician in her family's business within the dentistry field, working alongside her genius of a dad for the past 13 years.
She is currently studying her Diploma in Counselling and holds a Diploma in Reflexology. Jo is quite the creative artist who is working on opening a side business of resin art creations.
She values living life in integrity and authentically, showing compassion and kindness to all who come across her path and honouring herself and her truths.
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.
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 over the past few years, she is excited to step into a new role as both business owner, and mother the the gorgeous Eleanor.
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.
