Samantha, Office Manager

I first met Dr. Buss as a patient at Harmony Chiropractic and quickly felt right at home with the care I received as well as the ambience of the office. When an opportunity to join the staff became available, it felt like a natural transition, and I am so thrilled to be a part of the Harmony team. I have always been passionate about fitness and nutrition, as well as holistic health practices, so it is a joy to come to work each day!

Outside of Harmony Chiropractic, I am a busy mom of five (three human and two dogs!) and keep an active lifestyle. I enjoyed a twenty-year career as a teacher specializing in parent-choice programs and gifted magnet education while teaching fitness classes on the side for several years. I love cooking and baking, going on beach vacations, and hanging out with my family!


Carrie, Chiropractic Assistant

I’ve always been interested in natural ways to strengthen and heal the body, and that’s what drew me into fitness. Through exercise I felt physically and mentally stronger every day! My desire to share that with others led me to become a Group Fitness Instructor, eventually specializing in Pilates. Many of the people I trained with, as well as friends and family, spoke of how much chiropractic care really helped them to feel their best, and take their health to the next level. When I heard of an opportunity at Harmony, I was very excited to be part of another community focused on wellness.

My husband and I have two adult children, Zack and Allie, and one fur baby, Marley who is a black and tan coonhound/lab mix. I love spending time with family and friends, reading, and staying active. I feel very grateful to be a part of the Harmony Chiropractic family!


Daphne, Chiropractic Assistant

I’m 21 years old and was born and raised in Elgin. Working with patients is something I’ve always aspired to do. Working at Harmony has given me the chance to put my skills into practice. I started off as a patient at Harmony Chiropractic, from the start Dr. Curt has always made me feel welcome. From being a patient, to working beside him, I can truly say he listens and cares deeply about his patient’s health and wellbeing.

Outside of the office I have two other jobs, I am a cashier at the Burlington store and also a caregiver to two beautiful ladies. In addition, I’m also a full time student at ECC. After wrapping up my associate degree in science, I’m excited to say I’ll be starting nursing school.

At home I have two doggies, Biscuit a yellow Lab and Pebble a Dalmatian. During my free time I’m either hanging out with my family or out and about doing fun activities, trying new foods, feeding my shopping addiction, or watching my favorite shows on Netflix.
