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.


Norma | Billing Specialist

I’ve been a resident of Royal Oak since 2005, and Southeast Michigan my entire life. My family keeps me very busy. In my free time you can probably find me at the High School in the Band or Orchestra room doing all that I can to help support the instrumental music program.

Last year, the team at Van Every welcomed me and my child with open arms and warm hearts as my child was experiencing some very unusual and troubling symptoms. We had been to many doctors, all of them unable to give us a reason, let alone a way to fix what was going on. Scared out of my mind for my child, I thought, “Could Chiropractic help? I’ll do ANYTHING!” I immediately called Van Every, as I had always heard wonderful things. They assured me that I wasn’t crazy and that they would do anything they could to help, and that we should come in as soon as possible. We did. Things started changing for the better right after the first adjustment. After everything I learned at those first appointments about Chiropractic, I knew this was something my whole family could benefit from.

Personally, Chiropractic has helped me battle depression, sinus headaches and deal with the herniated discs in my neck. I could not be happier to be a part of a team that helps provide a better quality of life for all that they touch.

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.


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.


Ashley | New Patient Specialist

I was born and raised in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan, but currently reside in Saint Clair Shores with my husband, Aaron, our daughter, Adalyn, and our dog, Dr. Jones. Outside of work, I love traveling with my family, being outdoors, and exploring nature.

I have been experiencing chiropractic care since I was in High School, when I began to suffer from back and neck pain. I started coming to Van Every Family Chiropractic Center in 2016, after experiencing a very traumatic couple of months of constant tingling and numbness in my extremities. With no previous answers or help from the medical field, I discovered Van Every and the KST technique. It was gentle and very specific to my problem areas, and completely changed my life! I could feel immediate relief after being adjusted and could finally begin living my life regularly again.

I could not be happier to be part of a team that is so incredibly caring and helpful! It’s amazing to be part of something that is so beneficial to the community and the health of individuals, and to see the positive changes people experience after being cared for by Van Every.
