Andrew S. Wright
Doctor of Chiropractic
I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Life University in Marietta, GA. During my time at Life, you would find me inspiring prospective students and spreading the good news about vitalistic health as a Student Ambassador. While conventional chiropractic care alleviated my symptoms such as seasonal allergies and crossfit injuries, NetworkSpinal care brought my life and healing to the next level.
After graduating from Life University, I had the privilege of serving the city of Asheville, NC, working in the office of Dr. Brian T. Lumb. I was also the first person to be accepted to the Master-E program while still being a student. I am now in my second year in this program studying directly under Dr. Donald M. Epstein, the founder of EpiEnergetics and developer of NetworkSpinal.
During my time at Life University, I fell in love with the city of Atlanta. I am honored to serve this community and am on a mission to help our people find freedom from the prison of disease and to truly create a life worth living.
A mere few years ago I was enslaved in my own mind and body. At five feet tall, I gained 40 pounds in three months while eating an all organic diet, drinking homemade fish broth, exercising five days a week, taking my daily vitamins, drinking my daily green juice, oil pulling, hiking, exposing my skin to the sun, and soaking in detox baths. I calendared every moment of my week and followed through on every to-do item I planned.
The problem? I was trying to control my life by taking part in “everything we are supposed to.” I was hiding the fact that my life was falling apart on the inside. I did not know how to express my emotions, digest stress, and most importantly: love myself. I was too caught up dancing to the tune of life that I thought everyone else wanted me to.
Through Network Spinal care I found the safety and stability within MYSELF to authentically be. I gained the strategies to process and express emotions. I stopped controlling the food I was eating, how I was exercising, and began listening to what my body needed. A laundry list of symptoms and excess weight dissipated and I organically discovered the tone of my own, personal tune. I learned that the offering of that gift – your true authentic self – is the most you can do to serve and love this world. In fact, that is all the world needs.

Elissa M. Albert
Lead Yoga and Meditation Instructor
I express love in many aspects of my life, and yoga is one of the most rewarding. Practicing, watching, teaching, or studying it: I LOVE it all. Yoga is self-love, self-worth, and self-awareness. I believe every soul wants to love and be loved; yoga helps us unfold the layers covering our heart that are stopping us from loving at our full capacity, and who doesn’t want that?
At age 19 I began teaching Level 1 Hatha Yoga to children and have been teaching now for 7 beautiful years. Continually interested in learning, I earned my 200 hour RYT at CorePowerYoga, Functional Movement Certification through B!RTHFIT, Yoga Nidra Certification from Amrit Yoga Institute and started leading teacher trainings.
In my classes you will receive intuitive hands on assists to enhance your practice and mood, a challenge to go deeper, mentally and emotionally, and loads of encouragement, smiles, hugs, and “WOOs!”
I’ll be sure to teach you about one fruit you didn’t know existed, have you asking for a 6 second, heart-to-heart hug every time you see me, and hype class up with hip hop, r&b, and slow jams. Above all, I love having fun.
We are grateful you are checking out AVO to help create the life you dream of. We are so excited to see you on your mat!
My undergraduate studies began as a pre-medical student at Kennesaw State University. While in school, I had the opportunity to work at a chiropractic office. Prior to this, I had very little knowledge of the benefits of chiropractic care but knew that my passion was rooted in facilitating healing in others. The more time I spent at the chiropractic office, my curiosity expanded. Eventually, I knew that this was the path for me. After completing my undergraduate degree with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics, I enrolled in chiropractic school at Life University in Marietta, Georgia.
I graduated Magna Cum Laude with my doctorate in chiropractic in June 2019. I have had the privilege of studying NetworkSpinal technique under the amazing guidance of doctors from around the world. During my last year of school, I served as president of the NetworkSpinal club. NetworkSpinal care has been transformational in my life, beyond what I thought possible. I am discovering true passion, awareness, authenticity, ease in my body, connection with others, and a desire for more. Having the opportunity to share this with others is a tremendous honor. I am beyond excited to continue my journey serving my community at AVO.
Doctor of Chiropractic
Breath and Movement Facilitator
Rooted in holistic practices of self-care, expression, and vision, I share my ability to create space for others to fully surrender and heal. By focusing on radical acceptance, I bring awareness, movement, and energetic elevation to my audiences. I am mostly self-taught through many years of traveling internationally and interning at meditation, yoga, and healing retreat centers. I have dedicated my practice to movement and am RYS 200 certified in Tantra Yoga from Durga Tiger School in Quito, Ecuador. My practice uses Kundalini, Hatha, Yin, dance, improvisation, and self-created techniques for integrating the subconscious, subtle body.
I am not a teacher. I have nothing to offer you that you already do not know for yourself. You are already the change our world has invited to see- thus, I do not need to change you. Rather, I will be a mirror towards your deepest values by holding the space to guide you in exploring your depths as I explore my own. If you do not see the light within, well then, I will transfer a match from my own flame to bring a spark to your own. This is a tribe. This is what we will create together. I am honored.
“We are not going natural, we are returning. Natural is where we began.”
What People Say About Us.
“…[Drs. Andrew, Abbie, and Morgan] introduced me (and my body) to the Network Chiropractic technique which does NOT use sudden manipulations of the body but rather takes a non- invasive, natural approach to interpret and monitor the state of your spine. I feel very active in my own healing process now, and am feeling whole and happy! I owe so much to this dedicated team of care givers. Truly life altering. If you are ready to experience what’s possible, I highly recommend that you check AVO out.”
