Mandy was born on May 26, 1987 in Stevens Point, Wisconsin and was raised by her parents Mary Sumnicht and John Burby. She attended school locally, graduating from Stevens Point area High School in 2005. She met her high school sweetheart (and eventual husband) Eric Etienne in 2004 through the online chat service AIM. After dating for a few years, Mandy moved to Eric’s hometown of Parsippany, New Jersey to start their lives together in a whole new world, building a promising future. She started her career at York Risk Services in 2009, working in the mail room. With her great work ethic and positive attitude, she quickly worked her way up to become a customer service representative, data analyst, and then Junior Account Manager in matter of years. With the passion and desire to continue growing, Mandy returned to school and graduated with highest honor from Passaic County Community College in 2018. From there, Mandy continued to excel and challenge herself to reach new heights in her career, eventually finding a new home working for Chubb Insurance as a Partnership Associate.
