Hi, my name is Karen Jaffe.

Karen Jaffe, Office Manager

As an adult, I had been to a number of different chiropractors and alternative healers, but until I found Yellow Springs Chiropractic, I had never felt quite at home. The doctors are focused on whole body wellness and overall health, and from the first minute I walked into the peaceful office, I felt like they (and the rest of the amazing staff) unconditionally cared for my well-being. My hope and goal is for everyone who comes in our the door to feel the same way I do. When I’m not in the office, I spend my time working for the Dayton Literary Peace Prize Foundation, and I also teach improv comedy.

Dene Wells

Hi, my name is Dene Wells.

My entire adult life I have been an avid believer in Chiropractic Care and alternative healing solutions. Prior to joining the Team at YSC I was a patient. From my first appointment I was incredibly impressed with the quality of care I received as well as the kindness and concern of the Doctors and staff for my well being… characteristics that are very valuable to me. Time spent with my family is most important. I am very active in my church, love cheering on those amazing Buckeyes, as well as travel, music, and playing golf.


Dawn Malepe

Hi, my name is Dawn Malepe.

Originally from New York, I moved to Yellow Springs six years ago.  Being in this beautiful town means I can stay active by rollerblading, long-boarding, and participating in various other team sports, and stay fit by also eating well. Working at YSC has been a great experience!  I’ve gotten to see first-hand as an employee and a patient, the amazing benefits of chiropractic care and Applied Kinesiology, and the help they bring to people of all ages and challenges.
