Health Coordinator (HC)
Yasmeen was born in Reno Nevada, but grew up in Las Vegas. She went to Las Vegas Academy High School for Performing Arts where she majored in dance and fell in love with learning about the body. Being a dancer for most of her life, she trained in ballet, jazz, contemporary, and modern styles of dance. She has experience in Pilates, Yoga, and different body conditioning techniques.
After graduating high school, she decided to use her knowledge of the body elsewhere, leading to the study of massage therapy. She acquired her massage therapy license which led her on the path to work in a physical therapy office for about 5 1/2 years. Working in a physical therapist office provided her with knowledge in pain management, recovery and different massage techniques as well as patient education in exercise. Currently she’s on a new journey with us to expand her knowledge in patient education & care as it relates to healthcare coordination & providing patients the concierge type of service that we all need!
What Health means to Yasmeen: She believes that being healthy and effectively creating a permanent positive change starts from within. Being healthy internally, spiritually, and mentally is just as important as being healthy on the exterior as well.

Prior to becoming a Health Coordinator for Alignology, I was initially introduced to this amazing team back in November of 2018; by becoming a stem cell patient and that has currently been the most AMAZING, LIFE ALTERING PROCESS OF MY LIFE. After countless visits to pain centers and failed procedures, I walked into this office as a broken woman in body and spirit. What attributed to this?
During the early part of my life, I was involved in two significant accidents. The first one was a roll over car accident where I was ejected out of the cabin of the vehicle and the second was a freak horse accident where I broke my ankle. As a result, I was left in a constant cycle of pain ever since. With the advantages of the functional medicine and holistic approach to my healing, I’ve began getting pieces of my life back in order. After being offered a position as Health Coordinator with the team, I was thrilled to accept the position and return to the work force!
My medical training began as a Medic in the Nevada Army National Guard, at the age of 17. After the roll over car accident, I became extremely passionate about wanting to help others, and my interest in being in the medical field was sparked. Learning about field medicine and trauma in the military was very exciting and appealing; spending time in the field was extremely rewarding and enjoyable. I was involved in the Combat Lifesaver training program for the state, which trained soldiers for basic lifesaving skills while in the field and while deployed. Additionally, I served in the Nevada State Honor Guard as an Honor Guard Instructor/Trainer, and Team Leader for Military Funeral Honor missions. Serving in the Nevada Army National Guard for ten years was a huge part of my life and a great passion that to lead many opportunities and lifelong friendships!
Upon completion of my military service, I worked for a tactical medical training company for 5 years, building on my experiences from the military and learning highly skilled techniques as they were being introduced into military trauma doctrine. Being surrounded by operators from around the world and varying agencies was such an incredible experience.
After my time spent with the company my husband (who I met in the military) and I started a family and welcomed our daughter, Vivian into the world. She is now 5 years old and makes our lives so complete and filled up with love and purpose. It was a goal of mine to go back in the work force by the time our daughter was in school full time, and it’s been such a blessing to have this opportunity at the right time!
