Ryan Volz is our Registered Dietitian and Dr. Volz's wonderful husband of nearly 8 years. Ryan graduated from Life University in 2002 with a degree in Dietetics. He completed his one year internship at Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri to become a REGISTERED Dietitian. People often wonder what the difference is between a Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist. The biggest difference is the amount of education an RD must have; 4 years with a 1 year internship and the exam to pass to have the credentialing. Ryan's focus is on preventative care and teaching healthy and natural lifestyle/habit changes for the well being of the body. Ryan specializes in nutritional counseling and supplying quality supplements and vitamins to help people regain and maintain their optimal health. Ryan also cares for people wtih diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and many other health challenges. In addition to being a husband and RD, Ryan is also an amazing father to he and Dr. Volz's 3 children, Jake, Jordan and Hayden.
Brenda Clark is the wonderful mother of Dr. Volz and has been working at the office longer than any other staff member. Actually, she helped open the office in October 2005. Brenda and her husband, Jim, have owned & operated a packaging and shipping business in Okemos called PostNet since 1995. Brenda has two daughters, five grandchildren (all 4 years old and under) and has been happily married for over 36 years. In addition to working at the office she is now a full time grandma and helps both of her daughters often with her grandchildren!!
Executive Assistant/Office Manager
I grew up in Lansing and now reside in Okemos with my husband Mike and our two energetic children. My family is my life and I enjoy spending as much time with them as I can! I feel very privileged to work with such wonderful staff and patients while I am away from my family.
Recently I graduated from Williamston High School and began classes at Lansing Community College. I live with my mom, dad and younger sister, Alexis. I played tennis for 2 years and volunteer in the kids area at Mount Hope Church where I have gone since I can remember. I am excited to be working with, as well as, receiving Chiropractic care from such inspirational women and look forward to learning all they have to teach me!
I am the oldest of 8 kids and love being around families. I am home schooled and play the cello in an orchestra. I love shopping and being with my family and friends. I'm excited to be working at Volz Family Chiropractic, and to be learning more about my body and how it works!
