Meet Our Staff
Introducing: Melanie Andrews, C.C.P.A.
Melanie is a Michigan transplant and proud graduate of the University of Michigan! She moved to southeast Florida 3 days after graduation and has not looked back!
Upon moving south, she taught preschool for almost 10 years before heading to the West coast of Florida, where she ventured into something new and started a career in the chiropractic field. Melanie completed the Certified Chiropractic Physician's Assistant course through Cleveland Chiropractic College in 2008, and became licensed with the state of Florida, the same year she came on board with Korman Relief & Wellness Center.
Melanie and her husband are huge sports enthusiasts, and enjoy following her alma mater, as well as attending local sporting events of any nature!
Family time is very important to the Andrews and includes activities with their son and four-legged fur babies! So, when Melanie is not at the office, you can probably find her out on a kayak, attending a Stone Crabs game, or cheering on her Maize & Blue!
Introducing: Dena Bridge, LMT
Dena Bridge is our full-time Massage Therapist. Dena has been a practicing Massage Therapist for 7 years, and we are happy to have her on our team!
Dena graduated from Florida College of Natural Health in 2006 with an Associates Degree in Neuromuscular Therapy. She has always had a passion for massage therapy, and, in 2009 began working for a chiropractor and found medical massage to be where her specific skill set lines up.
Introducing: Brian Korman
Brian Korman, husband of Dr. Laura Korman, is an integral part of our office. Most patients will see Brian in our Therapy Room, as our head Therapy Technician. He is there to see to the health and wellness of our Therapy patients, and is certified and well-versed on all of our therapy equipment. In addition, Brian is our “jack-of-all-trades,” and sees to so many of the needs of our building, our office and our staff. Brian is constantly making aesthetic and mechanical improvements to our Wellness Center, and is the most enjoyable, positive energy we could ever hope to have. Brian’s smile is infectious, and his positive attitude is contagious.
Introducing: Brianna Korman
Brianna Korman, daughter of Brian and Dr. Korman, has worked “off and on” at Korman Relief & Wellness Center for many years. Brianna has moved back to the area and is back on staff now! You will find Brianna at the front desk, and you will see her “coming and going” as she is likely to check you in and, when finished, she will likely be the staff member taking your payment, scheduling your next appointment, and wishing you a good rest of the day! Brianna is cheerful, friendly and knowledgeable and is eager to take care of any needs that you may have.
Introducing: Connie Orman
A transplant from KC (Go Chiefs & Royals!), Connie and husband, Denis, retired to North Port, Florida, in 2006, where they are full time residents.
Connie contributes her skill set by working remotely on “all things internet,” in addition to managing various projects off-site for Dr. Korman.
We all look very forward to helping you on your road to wellness!
