Meet Our Staff

Melissa at Van Every Family Chiropractic Center

Melissa | Office Manager

I lived in Clawson my entire life until I met my now husband, Mike, and relocated to Woodhaven. We married in 2005 and I had an instant family, having a step daughter, Chelsey. We decided to extend our family and had our son Aiden in 2007. Most of all I love my family time. We enjoy going up north to our cabin, spending time outdoors and going to the beach. I also enjoy working out and I’m a big believer in living a healthy lifestyle.
Growing up, my family always sought alternative medicine and as a result I was introduced to Chiropractic at a young age. My whole family and extended family gets checked and adjusted on a regular basis. They’ve all seen the benefits and advantages of chiropractic care.

I was a patient for five years before I became an employee at Van Every Family Chiropractic Center. In the year 2005 I became part of an amazing team lead by Dr. Anna Saylor, who has put her whole heart and soul into her practice. She truly cares for her patients and has given so much to the community and continues to do so. I’ve been fortunate to be a part of the growth and success of the practice. I couldn’t ask to work at a better place. I’m grateful to be working with two amazing doctors and our wonderful staff at Van Every Family Chiropractic Center.

Denelle at Van Every Family Chiropractic Center

Denelle | New Patient Assistant

I’ve lived in the metro Detroit area most of my life, except for a wonderful four year stint in Chicago. I love to spend my free time with my family, especially my triplet nieces and nephew.

I have been a fan of chiropractic since the 80’s. Chiropractic helps me manage the tension in my neck and back, and regular adjustments also help me manage my stress and sinus headaches, without medication. It simply keeps me in balance.

I have been on the Van Every Family Chiropractic Center team since 2008. I enjoy encouraging patients to keep on track with their health goals, and find it very rewarding to see their progress. Also, it’s great to see chiropractic through the children’s perspective…they get it! They know when they need an adjustment. Some of our youngsters who practice sign language have even made up a sign for an adjustment.

Lou Ann | Office Assistant

I came to chiropractic because of my daughter, Dr. Anna Saylor. Our family has all benefitted from chiropractic care, particularly when she chose to pursue KST as her favored technique.

When I’m not helping in the office, my husband and I love to spend time Up North at our cottage, travel and spend fun time with our family and friends.

Chiropractor Royal Oak Zach

Zach | Billing Specialist

I’m a Kalamazoo native of 21 years. Since then I’ve lived in Grand Rapids, Byron Center, and then here in Royal Oak for the past 4 years. My girlfriend and I just bought our first house last year. The kids love it here.

Chiropractic wasn’t always something I believed in or knew much about. When I played football, I would just fight through the back injuries, sprained ankles, and crushed fingers. It wasn’t until I was about 17 that I had heard some of the benefits of chiropractic care; so I visited a doctor in Kalamazoo and was referred to a place nearby. After a month or so of going about twice a week, I noticed that when I woke up my neck didn’t hurt anymore. When I would run, my knees didn’t send a shocking pain through my body, and I didn’t get shin splints. I felt great and that was the pinnacle of my sports days.

I’m new to Van Every Family Chiropractic Center, but I’ve got friends that are religious about the many health benefits of coming here to get adjusted. That and everyone’s personalities that brighten your day. That is the reason that I don’t just work here, I am a recipient of the care here as well. In my tenure, I’ve come to enjoy the company of such great people.

Patrice at Van Every Family Chiropractic Center

Patrice | Chiropractic Assistant

I’ve been a proud metro Detroiter for all of my life (minus a year in Boston after college). I live in Royal Oak with my husband, Kevin, our two college aged kids, a dog and a cat.

I have been a fan of chiropractic since college when I began experiencing neck and back pain.

I began having my two kids adjusted by a chiropractor soon after they were born and my husband started care at that time as well. We eventually discovered Van Every Family Chiropractic Center and the KST technique. It’s gentle yet precise and I can honestly feel the difference immediately when my neck pain flares up. Regular adjustments have also helped keep anxiety and stress under control for me. I’m so glad to be a member of the Van Every team, keeping myself, my family and the community healthy and happy.

Rachel at Van Every Family Chiropractic Center

Rachel | Chiropractic Assistant

I was born and raised in Oakland County, Michigan and spent a few years living in Florida from age nineteen to twenty-two. After meeting my amazing boyfriend Jared, we decided to move back to Michigan to be closer to my family and start our life together. We have one adorable fur baby Molly. She is a Brittany Spaniel and keeps us on our toes. Jared, Molly and I enjoy walks, going to the dog park and spending as much quality time at home together as work allows.

I have been a dedicated patient of Van Every Family Chiropractic Center since the very beginning. I began getting adjusted at just five years old. As Dr. Saylor’s cousin, I have been around since the very beginning and watched this office grow. I have worked part time at the office since I was sixteen and love being a part of the team here! Being adjusted regularly is what keeps me grounded and my body operating smoothly.


Christy | Chiropractic Assistant

I was born and raised in Clawson and continue to live there with my family. We started coming to Van Every a year ago when my 10 year old daughter Hope was suffering from severe anxiety and was missing months of school. When her teacher told us about Van Every, Hope was initially very hesitant to go, but within two weeks she was smiling and laughing again. She went back to school after those two weeks and things have only gotten better since. She loves going for adjustments and always knows when she needs one.

My 8 year old son Kahne has some learning disabilities and is in special classes at school. He was also extremely shy and cried every morning when he was dropped off at school. He has been getting adjusted for about 8 months now and he is communicating better and recently moved out of his special math class and is doing the same math with his class.

I just can’t say enough about Van Every—chiropractic was my family’s miracle, and I’m so glad that we get to be a part of the Van Every family.


Heidi | Chiropractic Assistant

I’ve lived in Clawson most of my life. I have three amazing kids, age 4, 9, and 13. I started taking my family to Van Every Family Chiropractic in 2012 to help with allergies, reflux and maintaining their health. I also became a patient soon after seeing the results. I started work at Van Every Family Chiropractic in February of 2017, and I love being part of the team.


Renee | Chiropractic Assistant

I was born and raised here in the metro Detroit area, and currently reside here with my husband and two children. I recently graduated from Oakland University with my Bachelors in Business Administration.

I began bringing my almost 9 year old son and 6 year old daughter to Van Every in the beginning of March 2017 to help with some behavioral and emotional issues. At the time I had no idea that chiropractic could help with so much more than just back pain. My kids love coming in to get their adjustments and actually tell me when they need one. I’m so happy to be part of such a friendly, caring staff and am excited to see what else chiropractic care can do for the overall health of myself and the rest of my family.
