Chiropractic Columbus OH Michelle Lake Office Manager
Office Manager

Michelle Lake

Michelle is originally from Woodstock, OH. She officially moved to Columbus for continued education at Otterbein University where she received her BA in Public Relations.

After graduation, she dove right into the job search that was unfortunately halted by a car accident. Michelle was pushed by many medical professionals to have spinal surgery to attempt to alleviate the pain she was experiencing, but she was eager to search all other options before moving forward.


That is how she was introduced to Chiropractic Care. After alleviating all the complications from the accident, she saw how beneficial Principled Chiropractic Care was to her daily life. She wanted to spread the word and ended up following a career into Chiropractic Care.

Michelle first started with Mission Chiropractic & Wellness in 2018 and has not looked back. The most fulfilling aspect of her job is interacting with the Practice Members and seeing them experience function returning to the body due to Chiropractic Care.

In her free time, Michelle loves traveling, playing with her two dogs and spending quality time with her husband and daughter. They are eager to introduce their newest daughter to the family in the fall.
