Alexis, Rehab Manager:
Alexis joined the team at Active Life Health & Wellness in March 2015. Alexis and her husband Brent just moved to the Valley from Bunkerville, NV. She is excited to be part of a team that is focused on the health and wellbeing of their clients. Alexis enjoys working with patients and creating new relationships that turn into lasting friendships. Alexis prides herself in being as helpful and friendly as possible. Alexis is recently married to the man of her dreams, they love being active in Crossfit and going out to the movies together. She is extremely grateful to be a part of the Active Life Health and Wellness team.
Bonnie, Weight Loss Consultant:
Bonnie started with Active Life Health and Wellness as a patient 3 years ago after having been under chiropractic 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 the chiropractic department 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 Chiropractic 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.
Ashley, Front Desk Manager:
Ashley recently joined the Active Life Health & Wellness Team in February 2015. She returned home from a mission in southern California. She was born and raised here in the Vegas valley, but misses the California sunshine. Ashley has been a licensed cosmetologist for almost 3 years. She enjoys helping others look good, but even more, she loves to help people feel good about themselves. Due to a recent family member becoming ill, she has become more involved and aware of the importance of keeping your body healthy. Ashley understands the importance of taking care of the body and wants others to as well. She loves communicating with other people, so the front desk is a perfect fit!
Ashley enjoys playing any sport, but especially loves basketball and volleyball. She loves the outdoors and spending as much time with her family as she can. She is very happy to be here at Active Life Health & Wellness!
