Amanda Tebbitt

Chiropractic Assistant

Hi, I am Amanda, one of the newer faces at Abundant Life. I’m a local; raised along with my four sisters in rural Minnesota on a beautiful 40 acre weed patch. Growing up in the country had its charms (and its chores!) but I’m sure it’s because off all that fresh air that being out in nature is still where I am happiest.
My family and I recently moved back to Minnesota after being away for 10 years. Most of it was spent near the shores of beautiful Lake Michigan in the Milwaukee area, but we also spent some time abroad living nearly two years in Israel. That was quite an adventure! Now as a busy mom of four teenagers, and one hyperactive dog, my adventures are a little less exotic, but its safe to say there’s never a dull moment.
I came to Abundant Life with a diverse work history in both healthcare and customer service, and I have found that working as a Chiropractic Assistant has been a great fit for me! I have appreciated being welcomed onto such an incredible team, where we strive to give our patients the best possible care and experience each day! 😊

Jessica Gangelhoff

Office Manager

I’m Jessica,
Being part of the Abundant life Chiropractic team allows me to combine my passion for helping others and continue to create inspiration for myself to work towards optimal health.

As a married mother of 3, perfecting the balancing act of order and chaos can be challenging at times, but with 16+ years of early childhood development and administrative management experience it makes it
easier to transition from scrubs to a cape and join the rest of us elite super moms in the world 😊
Though I’m not athletic by nature, I’ve grown to be a youth sports super fan spending plenty of Friday’s and Saturday’s watching my children and their friends become elegant dancers, buzzer beating basketball players and football stars. In my free time you will find me listening to music, reading, playing board games ( my absolute favorite!) and spending as much time with family and friends as possible.

As I continue to grow, my goals are to strengthen old friendships, create new ones, obtain more wisdom, and deepen my relationship with the divine so that I can live fully through my heart and give more to this world than I take from this earth.

This is my two cents of me, sharing is what being a community is about. I look forward to hearing your story!
Namaste Friends 😊
