Our team is built from individuals who represent the values we hope to convey through your care.
Amanda is one of our experienced receptionists that joined us in 2012. You will be greeted with her great smile as you enter the practice or enjoy her wonderful personality over the phone. She enjoyed serving the community in a similar capacity for more than 10 years prior to joining us and we are so pleased to have her as a part of our practice team! Amanda was born in Athens, Alabama but grew up in multiple locations - living in Hawaii, South Alabama, Germany, and Virginia - before returning to her roots in Athens. Amanda enjoys spending time with her family, reading, music, and dance fitness. She loves watching football and baseball and is excited to be a part of your healthcare team!
