Chiropractic Cleveland OH Danielle Meet The Team

Co-Owner, Project Manager & COO

Danielle Leonard

Danielle brings decades of experience to all the behind-the-scenes work that helps move the ship forward. Think of the 'Wizard of Oz behind the red curtain' but without a moustache and crazy hair!

What started as a vision crafted by her husband many years ago has turned into a dream come true with Great Lakes and fuels her passion to see that health & wellness becomes a part of everyone's lifestyle in Northeast Ohio. She enjoys live music, comedy, hosting, hiking, and traveling most of all. While she has traveled the world, she discovered the grass is just as green in Cleveland and loves to call it home!

Chiropractic Cleveland OH Kim Meet The Team

Co-Owner & Regional Manager

Kim D.

Kim, Regional Manager, joined the Great Lakes team in 2019 and has over a decade of effective chiropractic office management experience. Her number one goal as a leader is to ensure the best possible experience for every patient that chooses Great Lakes.

She uses her Linguistics degree from Cleveland State University solely to proofread Dr. Bob's e-mails and apologizes in advance for any corny jokes that make it through her editing. In her free time, she can be found on her sailboat with her husband or planning their next hiking trip.

Chiropractic Cleveland OH Valerie Meet The Team

Ohio City Office Manager

Valerie A.

Valerie, a native of Iowa, transplanted herself to Lakewood in 1991, where she fostered her love for outdoor activities and adventures. Whether it's rock climbing, kayaking, or hitting up concerts, she's always up for the thrill.

Joining GLHW in 2022 was a natural extension of her passion for helping others. When she's not scaling cliffs or paddling down rivers, you'll likely find her at the gym or bowling alley, embracing every opportunity for fun and fitness.

Chiropractic Cleveland OH Ryan Meet The Team

Ohio City Chiropractic Assistant

Ryan C.

Ryan grew up in Bay Village and grew into an avid sports fan - Ryan loves all things Cleveland sports, but the Guardians are the front-runner of the 3 teams we have here. Ryan loves to stay active playing golf (when he's not shooting 100), going to the gym, or walking his dog, Dez.

Ryan's background fits in seamlessly with Great Lakes as he is a Holistic Health Coach, and currently pursuing his board certification to be a Holistic Health Practitioner. When he is not being active, or doing schoolwork, you'll catch him watching a movie!

Strongsville Chiropractic Assistant

She is someone who loves unapologetically and whose heart skips a beat for traveling, concerts, skateboarding, CLE football, reading, hiking, and journaling.
