Our Family

Our City Center Chiropractic team is truly passionate and dedicated to serving the families of the Denver/Aurora community. We love having a warm and welcoming environment where our patients can be themselves and feel supported and loved.

Dr. Michele Orchard

After a terrifying car accident in 1987 and personally experiencing the benefits of chiropractic, Dr. Michele decided to become a chiropractor to help others achieve health – the natural way. The discovery that the body has an amazing ability to recover and heal itself from the inside out inspired her.

Michele has been practicing for over 23 years and has been at City Center Chiropractic for over 20 years. Dr. Michele has a passion for children and is a certified WEBSTER practitioner, a technique that has been effective in
assisting pregnant women with in-utero constraint. She is inspired by helping patients and her compassion and energy is obvious to everyone she treats.

Dr. Michele, her husband and two boys live in Denver and when she is not practicing, she loves to exercise as well as spend quality time with friends and family. She also loves her two dogs, Mrs. Beasley and Fezzik who she considers her 4 legged kids.

Dr. Michele practices what she preaches. Her 2 boys receive regular chiropractic adjustments and are balanced, healthy and happy. She firmly believes in fixing the underlying cause of the problem, not just the symptoms and that life is better when you’re well adjusted.

Elizabeth Prescott

Elizabeth grew up in a family that had always exposed her to natural and holistic healing. Growing up as a dancer, she was introduced to complementary medicine for the treatment of injuries with truly successful results. After receiving such good care, she knew she wanted to help others the way she had been helped. She began by studying massage at the Hands on Healing Institute in Tujunga, CA. After realizing the depth and breadth of information available, she decided to continue her training by adding an AOS degree in massage therapy from Heritage College and an MS degree in Oriental medicine from the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine. She now has licenses in acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine as well as massage therapy and has 15 years of experience.

Elizabeth remains passionate in the pursuit of learning as much as she can in order to offer as many tools as possible to those seeking to improve their health. Her empathy and desire to help her community make her an excellent partner in health care. Elizabeth constantly seeks to help her patients to find balance and harmony in all aspects of health and healing.

Laura Lee-Martin

Laura grew up and lived in Dearborn MI for 30 years before moving to Denver. Once here she has consistently worked for doctors of all specialties. Her expertise in the health profession ranges from medical assistant to adjuster to insurance liaison.

Laura is someone who is inspired by people and their stories. Her positive outgoing energy is infectious and her compassion is felt by patients as they come through the door. Her cheerful disposition makes one feel as though the healing process starts as soon as she greets you.

Laurie Valaer

Laurie came to our team via a rather non-traditional path. After spending nearly 20 years as a software engineer and 7 years as a corporate leadership and human development trainer, she began suffering from a variety of stress-related health issues, including adrenal fatigue, digestive problems, and physical pain. Over the last few years, Laurie has worked with physicians, physical therapists, and a number of alternative medicine practitioners and, through them, she has found the tools (including chiropractic adjustments and acupuncture) to regain her health and manage her pain.

Laurie utilizes her software background, her attention to detail, and her analytical thinking to help our office run efficiently. Her human development expertise and her own personal experiences help make her a compassionate caregiver.

As a former patient in our office, Laurie is very pleased to be a part of the City Center Chiropractic team and to be able to pay the care forward.
