Chiropractor / Owner
Dr. Cheris started Vibrant Life to share her passion of helping families find vibrant health through chiropractic. She received her doctorate of Chiropractic from Life Chiropractic College West, in Hayward CA and is active and certified with the ICPA (International Chiropractic of Pediatric Association) in the Webster Certification. She’s excited about extending her expertise with ongoing education in order to provide specialized assistances to women in pre-conception, pregnancy, post-partum, and pediatric neuro development. Dr. Cheris is originally from Maui, HI and, while she will always call Maui home, graduated from High School and received her undergraduate degree in Washington State.
Holly Buchanan joined Vibrant Life Chiropractic in April of this year as reception and marketing. She graduated with a B.A. in Communications from the University of Washington. She has a passion for holistic health and wellness. She has worked for both small and large businesses on their social media and marketing. She has a background in journalism that gives her a hunger for knowledge, social justice and equal rights. In her spare time, she enjoys creating all-natural products for her Etsy shop, spending lots of time outdoors with her family hiking and rockhounding.
‘Alohi’ (for short) is a love bug, and believes you are here to see her. Her enthusiasm and love for visitors is expressed by licking and/or jumping to have you pick her up – both of which she knows she is not supposed to do. We ask that if you do pick her up, please pick up both ends of her long body to keep her back safe. She has the softest fur, which you will notice when she asks you to pet her.
Mikayla Dion has been working with Vibrant Life Chiropractic as our biller/receptionist since the beginning of 2021. She has had the amazing opportunity to meet so many new faces and has had the pleasure of learning so many new things. She has several years of experience working in administration with various companies. She loves spending time with her family, friends, and her 14 year old dog named Max. Average people doing amazing things inspires her to work hard every day. Mikayla aspires to make it as easy as possible for anyone interested in their health and well-being to get the support they need!
Maka Le’a is our greeter and napper extraordinaire who can be found in any one of the dog beds or sun spot throughout the office. She loves to smell shoes and have her belly rubbed, but becomes shy if you reach for her head. She is a Chocolate Dapple Dachshund and has gorgeous spots all over her! She can be a bit of a diva, but is always eager for a treat. Please feel free to ask for a treat, to give her.
