Meet The Team

 Our Team!

Shayla Galvan

Office Manager

I have been a part of Dr. Syns team since 2009 & I am fortunate to be an asset to such an incredible team. I began as an RDA, in 2013 I changed positions, I am now the smiling face that welcomes you at the front door. I’ve grown & soaked up so much knowledge and now have the opportunity to wear many hats within our practice. I love that I am able to help wherever help is needed.


My heart is full with an amazing husband & 2 beautiful daughters. One of my biggest joys in life is the ability to watch life through my childs eye. We enjoy camping trips, lake days, riding... pretty much anything outdoors where we can make memories. As an Orland girl, I look forward to seeing you in and out of the office.

My name is Lara Bryant and I was born and raised in Chico, CA.

My husband, Steve and I moved to Orland in 2013 to continue his career in law enforcement. I was blessed to stay home and raise our children for 11 years. We have Hunter (14), Rylie (12) and Kinsley (8) and they attend Lake School and are involved in Lake 4-H, many sports teams and love to ride horses.  As a family we like to fish the Sacramento River and cabin at Lake Almanor.

 For me personally, I enjoy watching sports events, shooting hoops, crafting, throwing parties, goodwill shopping and getting a good deal! Watch out, I break for yard sales!! I am excited to be working part time here at Dr. Syn’s office where I can get out of the house and still be very involved with our kids and family. I will be working as one of the front office coordinators, so I look forward to meeting you and welcoming everyone with a smiling face.
