Meet our Team
Dr. Joshua K Purcell, Clinic Director:
Dr. Purcell graduated from Logan College of Chiropractic in 2001. He is licensed by the States of Nevada and Idaho. He is very passionate about helping people live healthier, more holistic lives. As the Clinic Director, he focus on bringing the latest state-of-the-art wellness therapies and treatments to the office. He has gone all over the United States studying various ways and techniques on natural health care. His goal is to help local families achieve optimal health and wellness by avoiding unnecessary drugs and surgeries one family at a time. He has been trained in many different techniques and loves adjusting children. He is married to his lovely wife, Rachel and has two wonderful children. When not in the office treating his patients, he enjoys spending time with his family, working out, and service in his church and communities.
Dr. Jarrod Chipp:
Dr. Chipp graduated from New York Chiropractor College in 2012. He is licensed in the States of Nevada and Pennsylvania. During his education Dr. Chipp focused on Sports Science and Human Performance as well as Whole Food Nutrition, obtaining advanced certifications in both fields. One of Dr. Chipp’s favorite aspects of this field is educating new patients who have never been under holistic care before. “It’s really fun to see that ‘aha’ moment when patients realize how their body works and how this is essential to a healthy lifestyle.”
In his spare time Dr. Chipp enjoys playing guitar, weightlifting, & cross country mountain biking.
Bonnie, Weight Loss Consultant:
Bonnie started with Active Life Health and Wellness as a patient 3 years ago after having been under holistic care for many years. She was so impressed with the office and the special care the employees gave their patients that, when an opening came up in the Lipo-Laser office, she applied and joined the Active Life team.
As a salon owner for 30 years, being able to work one on one with people seemed a perfect fit. After a short while, she began working in this field where she was able to share the gift of health and wellness in addition to marketing the message of wellness within our communities. Last spring she became a licensed Chiropractor Assistant.
Bonnie has always been passionate about health and nutrition as well as body detoxification. When we opened the Weight loss program in 2014, she was promoted to Weight Loss Consultant. Bonnie takes real pleasure in working directly with people in the program and helping them on their weight loss journey. When Bonnie is not working at Active Life Health & Wellness, she enjoys sewing, cake decorating, biking and spending time with her husband, 5 children and 12 grandchildren.
