Chiropractic of Bellevue moves

Chiropractic of Bellevue has moved to an updated office in the Wilburton area. The new office is located at 365 118th Ave SE, Suite 110 in Bellevue. The practice will continue to serve patients with the same quality of chiropractic care in the new office.

Chiropractic of Bellevue is a chiropractic care office providing chiropractic adjustments, drug-free pain management, massage therapy, sports injury rehabilitation and holistic healthcare. The practice is a preferred provider for Premera, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, Healthways, United, Lifewise, Regence, First Choice and Medicare. The practice’s new office is conveniently located near the Bellevue Botanical Garden, Home Depot and Uwajimaya grocery store in the Wilburton area. This updated office is in a more central location that is easily accessible from the 405 freeway.

“This new office location is very convenient for most of our current patients,” says Dr. Edward Owens, licensed chiropractor and owner of Chiropractic of Bellevue. “We are hoping that the new location will also allow us to help even more individuals and families in the area find drug-free pain relief and wellness.”

Bellevue travel agency bans elephant rides after PETA appeal

After learning from PETA that elephants who are forced to give rides at tourist attractions are often forcibly separated from their mothers, immobilized with tightly bound ropes, and gouged with nails or other sharp objects, Bellevue-based travel agency Down Under Answers—which operates Africa Answers and Asia Answers—made the compassionate and business-savvy decision to remove all elephant rides from its tour itineraries and commit to never offering them in the future.

“Down Under Answers joins dozens of major travel companies in agreeing to reject tourist traps that imprison highly intelligent, social elephants and force them to give rides,” says PETA Foundation Associate Director of Captive Animal Law Enforcement Rachel Mathews. “PETA urges kind tourists to steer clear of all captive-elephant attractions and to use travel agencies that have pledged to do the same.”

Smartsheet adds chief financial officer

Bellevue-based Smartsheet has just added its first-ever chief financial officer, Jennifer Ceran, who joins us after serving in Finance/CFO roles at high-growth tech companies in the Valley including Cisco, eBay/PayPal and Box. She’s been recognized as one of the “100 Most Influential People in Finance.”

The addition of Jenny is a strategic move to accelerate Smartsheet’s growth. We’re making a much bigger push into the enterprise, which is paying off with a 70 percent year-over-year revenue growth for the fifth year in a row. Employee growth is tied to financial growth, so we’re also expanding both our space in Bellevue and employee base at a remarkable pace.
