Meet the Health Zone Chiropractic Team


Kate Dirkse

Kate Dirkse – Office Manager

When Dr. Matt and I started Health Zone Chiropractic in 2007 we combined our two passions to create an environment unlike any other in the area. With a degree in hospitality management, I am all about delivering an experience that makes you walk away saying “WOW”. That teamed with Dr. Matt’s passion and expertise for pediatric and family chiropractic made for an unstoppable force. We have been blessed to serve our community and continue to provide amazing healing experiences for the past 15+ years. We will welcome you with a smile, share in your happiest of moments, support you during harder times and most importantly offers you the best healing environment. As a mom of 3 young kids, we have built our practice with families in mind. Our special kids and family area will make you feel right and home. We love it here and hope you do too!

Growing up as an athlete who saw a chiropractor for pain relief I was surprised to discover that I no longer needed seasonal allergy relief from drugs after regular chiropractic care. Receiving chiropractic care during my pregnancies allowed me to carry the all to 42 weeks and deliver our 2 boys at home. Raising them with regular chiropractic care has truly opened my eyes to the power of chiropractic and feel it’s one of the most powerful tools in my mom toolkit.

In my free time, I love gardening, spending time outdoors hunting for beach glass or wandering the aisles of Target and Home Goods.

Denise Bailey – Billing Specialist

I grew up in Grand Haven, MI and am a Certified Professional Coder through the American Academy of Professional Coders. I was a long time (9 year) patient at Health Zone Chiropractic and suffered from debilitating migraines. After years of successful chiropractic management, I came to work here to serve others by providing accurate insurance billing and to assist patients in getting the chiropractic care they need. I have been married for 30 years and am a proud mother of two daughters and a sweet Havenese puppy. I also love spending time with my two rambunctious adorable grandsons.

Rachel Kelley

Rachel Kelley – Care Advocate

I grew up in Traverse City and currently live in Grand Haven, MI. I originally came to our office as a new patient with back pain and left feeling excited that I had a doctor who cared about more than just treating my current symptoms. Since being under regular chiropractic care I’ve dealt with less anxiety, headaches, and fewer illnesses.

I have so much passion about what we do because I get to watch the power of chiropractic change lives for the better.

When I am not at the office you can find my husband and I fishing, playing tennis, and taking our dog Edgar out for bike rides.

Stacy Devowe

Stacy Devowe – Care Advocate

I was born, raised and currently reside in North Muskegon, MI. I attended Muskegon Community College and received my associates degree in graphic design. Then furthered my education at University of Phoenix with a degree in hospitality management. I thought I had found my forever career path as a graphic designer and print manager at a local business in Muskegon. Then I discovered the amazing world of chiropractic care!

My oldest daughter Shelby was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder at the age of two. Learning about her diagnosis I found myself googling everything. One night I was on Facebook and Dr. Matt’s Perfect Storm Workshop popped up in my news feed. I will be honest. I wasn’t totally sure about having my child adjusted by a chiropractor, but we decided to sign up to at least see what he had to offer. I have to say it was one of the best decisions we have ever made! The benefits of chiropractic care just amazes me. After a year of care and seeing the incredible change in Shelby, we began bringing her younger sister Evalyn and now I am also getting adjusted.

If we are not frequenting therapy appointments at The Shoreline Center you will find us spending time with the girls and our two pups Mr. Bentley and Mr. Virgil. In the summer you will find us outside swinging, jumping on the trampoline, riding the quad and grilling/smoking delicious food! When we are able to sneak away my husband Scott and I love venturing up north to the Silver Lake Sand Dunes and Dublin General Store!

I cannot imagine our lives without Health Zone Chiropractic. I feel so blessed to be a part of the team!

Carly Bienick

Carly Bienick – Care Advocate

I grew up in Hudsonville and currently live in Grand Haven, MI. I worked in the medical field for 9 years before deciding to become a stay at home mom to my 3 children. A few years later I started helping out with my husband’s family business and working for our church office. I met Dr. Matt when he came to the church with his team to do chair massages. I had never experienced any sort of chiropractic care before so I decided to schedule a new patient consultation and my family and I have been patients ever since (7 years). I have always struggled with neck pain and headaches. Keeping to my care plan and making chiropractic care a priority has been essential for my health and wellness.

In my spare time you will find me in the garden, watching youth baseball, working out at fit body boot camp and spending time doing outdoor activities with my family. We have a small farm of 20 chickens, 1 cat, 2 dogs and a salt water fish tank to keep us all busy! When we get the chance we love traveling to visit my parents in Florida.

I like to help practice members always have a positive experience and I am motivated by watching the progress of patients here at Health Zone Chiropractic.
