  • Alex Peterson
    Massage Therapist and Chiropractic Assistant

    • I’m a northern Illinois native in the STL area for schooling: finishing up my senior at SIUe for my B.S. in exercise science, and at the same time wrapping up massage therapy school. At the moment I have 5 jobs and am proud to say Darin Chiropractic is one of them! In my down time I enjoy painting and being with friends and family. Also, “I like long walks on the beach....”

  • Christine Harris
    ​Rehabilitation Specialist and Receptionist

    I grew up in Granite City, IL and currently live here. I graduated massage school in 2010 and have been working in the chiropractic field for the past 7 years. I started working for Dr. Darin when she opened in Granite City and helped develop and improve the physical therapy program in the office with the knowledge I’ve obtained throughout my professional career. In my free time I enjoy oil painting, baking/cooking, and spending time with my family.

  • Deanna Chastain
    Marketing Personnel

    With 30 years experience in marketing and office management, Deanna worked in Workers Compensation and (more recently) Senior Adult Care. When her mother was suffering with an inoperable muscular (neck) condition, Deanna researched and initiated chiropractic and acupuncture treatment for her. With regular treatments it restored full mobility to her mother’s neck without any recurrence. Deanna now advocates for chiropractic care and encourages others to not suffer needlessly. Being a patient at Darin Chiropractic coupled with her previous experience made it a natural fit to work for Dr. Darin. As a semi-retired grandmother, she enjoys traveling, reading, shopping, sitting on a beach (oceanside); and helps care for her grandsons as well as elderly parents
