Meet the Family Chiropractic Center Team

Miriah Mantik, Acupuncturist

Photo of MiriahMiriah has been practicing Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine since December 2014, immediately after graduating from Northwestern Health Sciences University. She has experience treating in many hospitals and integrative health clinics in the Twin Cities Metro including Woodwinds Hospital, Penny George Institute, Abbot Northwestern Hospital, The Aliveness Project and the Salvation Army.

Miriah found her acupuncture “home” here at Family Chiropractic in November of 2016, being the first practitioner of her kind in Farmington. Miriah loves working in an integrative setting as it allows her to co-manage the care of patients who are receiving other modalities including chiropractic & massage therapy. Miriah chose the career of acupuncture because of the enormous relief that she experienced from her chronic migraines following her acupuncture treatments as a child. She enjoys helping fellow migraine-sufferers, as well as treating other conditions ranging from colds and flus, mental health conditions, infertility concerns, and chronic pain.

Miriah lives in Hastings with her sons Roman and Nash, as well as her husband David. She will begin the indoctrination of being a Packer Fan to her son as soon as humanly possible (though his dad may have other plans)!

Angela Harder

Angela Harder, Chiropractic Assistant

Angela has been working as a Chiropractic Assistant since March of 2017. Chiropractic has been in her life for only the past 15 years, but she wishes she knew the benefits long before as she struggled with anxiety and allergies along with neck and back pains growing up. Prior to finding her passion, Angela dabbled in Real Estate, Party Planning, Graphic Design, Apparel Design and even authoring gluten free cookbooks. She also created Wellness Journals and Baby Journals that are currently for sale on Amazon.

When she’s not at work, Angela enjoys hiking with her husband (Troy), two kids (Alison and Grace) and her dog (Senna). She also enjoys gardening, cooking, restoring statues, painting and watching Survivor.

Heidi Speck, Clinic Director

Heidi, Chiropractic AssistantHeidi comes to us with a high level of expertise in the service industry, making her the perfect addition to the Family Chiropractic Center team. Heidi has seen the power of chiropractic in action both through her own experience with chronic stress and tension, as well as through her family members’ chronic pain. Before finding her home here at Family Chiropractic Center, Heidi lived in Seattle and managed a private salon for over a decade.

Outside of our warm and friendly office, Heidi enjoys soaking in the activities associated with all four of Minnesota’s seasons. She enjoys these activities with her husband (Tony) and their four kids. When not outside enjoying what Minnesota has to offer, nothing is more appealing to her than cuddling up on the couch for a family movie night. Heidi looks forward to assisting you and your family during your next visit.

Megan Carey

Megan joins the Family Chiropractic team, having been a patient first. After years of being plagued by chronic migraines multiple times per week, her life was changed when chiropractic cut them out almost entirely! Having an interest in the health care industry, Megan decided to share her passion and her story of the life-giving power of chiropractic by joining us here at the clinic.

You can find her outside of our clinic cruising around the south metro in Jenny, her Jeep Wrangler, with her husband and son. As well as exploring local dog parks with her Chocolate Lab, Kenny.

We are thrilled to add Leo to our team. He joins his older brother, Lux, on the Patient Experience Team.
