When it comes to ensuring business runs smoothly at our clinics, there’s one person we turn to: Billing Manager Mariedet Leano. Mariedet’s been with us for over a year now and has proven to be an invaluable part of our team, working behind the scenes to ensure we always have the resources to serve our patients.

While I might not go as far as calling myself a “celebrity,” it’s true I’ve built myself a following online. In fact, depending on the music you’re into, there’s a chance you may have even found my YouTube channel. It all started about 15 years ago when I was looking for videos of concerts I hadn’t gotten the chance to attend. To my surprise, despite the massive amount of content being uploaded to YouTube every single day, there was a surprising lack of concert

When people learn this about me, they almost always want to know what kind of
