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.
Doctor of Chiropractic
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.
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!
General Manager, Yoga & Meditation Instructor
I believe that yoga is connecting the body, mind, and spirit through breath. I developed a great passion for yoga during my own personal healing journey. The passion I cultivated allows me to connect on a spiritual level and energetically transmit the teachings of yoga. I love to help people reduce the effects of stress in their lives. Stress is just a part of life in today’s world. It is our response to that stress that determines the quality of our life. The practice of yoga nidra allowed me change the way I feel about stress.
In my classes I use physical poses and breath to dive deeper and deeper into the meditative state as we move through the class. The absolute best is when I get to facilitate Yoga Nidra after the physical practice. This powerful combination of practice allows you to get a full body workout and then go into a deep meditation that comes with ease.
I have multiple certifications in Hatha Yoga, Yoga Nidra and Integral Breath. I also experienced Prana Awakening, studied Ayurveda and traveled throughout India promoting the spiritual aspects of yoga.

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.”
