Dr. Kent Clark, Chiropractor
Dr. Clark is a board-certified chiropractor. As an avid proponent of living a wellness lifestyle, Dr. Clark teaches his patients the importance of whole-body wellness. His unique approach to health care recognizes that every patient requires different types of treatment tailored to their individual needs. Dr. Clark first sought chiropractic care while he was a professional firefighter/EMT in his hometown of Roanoke, Virginia. His overall health improved significantly after just a few visits, and this experience changed his perception of health. Being a first responder to hundreds of calls for chronically ill patients, he realized the need for teaching people about living a wellness lifestyle and moved to Dallas, Texas to study chiropractic. Dr. Clark graduated Summa Cum Laude from Parker University with his doctorate of chiropractic and bachelors of science in anatomy. He furthered his studies by taking additional courses in functional neurology and clinical nutrition, allowing him to provide a higher level of care to his patients. In 2011, Dr. Clark was honored to volunteer with ChiroMission and join a team of chiropractors on a six-day mission trip to St. Vincent, which is a small island in the Grenadine Islands. He along with the other doctors provided chiropractic services to government officials, military personnel, health care providers, and locals. Dr. Clark states, “It was an honor to provide service to people in a country where healthcare is not readily available. It was an experience I will cherish forever.” He also had the privilege of working with many professional athletes (NFL & MLB) and their families while practicing in Arizona. In 2018 and 2019, Dr. Clark was chosen as one of Loudoun’s Best Chiropractors by Loudoun Times-Mirror readers and Loudoun’s Favorite Chiropractor in 2018 by LoudounNow readers.

Michelle Marino, Office Coordinator
Michelle’s smiling face is the first one you will meet at Loudon Family Wellness! You will find her answering phones, scheduling visits, and handling pretty much everything else imaginable at the front desk. Her passion for helping others and her enthusiasm for health and wellness led her to Loudoun Family Wellness in 2015.
She first visited a chiropractor after suffering from sciatica at the age of 25. Frustrated with not receiving relief after numerous alternatives, she decided to visit a chiropractor on the advice of a friend, and walked out of her very first visit feeling 75% better!
Michelle graduated from Marymount University with a bachelors of arts degree in political science and worked in the Washington, D.C. area for over 20 years. She began her career on Capitol Hill working for a member of Congress, then joined the private sector as a federal lobbyist. In this capacity, she represented several non-profit entities, such as addiction/alcohol organizations, at-risk youth organizations, homeless shelters, cities, and counties. Realizing that she needed a more balanced work/family life, she decided it was time to hang her hat in D.C. to be closer to home.
Michelle lives in Berryville, Virginia with her big Italian family – husband, Lou, two children, Louie and Vinnie, and their rotten American bulldog, Duke. A strong believer that the mind, body, and spirit are centered through healthy activity and nutritional choices, she enjoys a variety of activities such as hiking, biking, swimming, working out, and family life.
