    Amanda "Mandee" Burns
    Chiropractic Assistant

    I've worked in the healthcare industry and customer service for 18 years. I was born and raised in Granite City and I am thankful to be working with Dr. Darin. It is not only close to home but the patients and staff make it feel like you're around family, so I enjoy coming into work everyday. Who said work can't be fun? In my spare time I like to travel and spend time outdoors hiking, fishing, and camping. I also like binge watching TV and playing XBox One, in the winter time. I also enjoy spending time with my family and my bull mastiff, Diesel.

    I’m the first face you see when you walk through the door. I'm a little beagle and dachshund mix and I’m 3 years old. I know how to sit, lie down, roll over and give puppy massages. Also, give me belly rubs or treats and we can be best friends.
