As most of you know, Joint Ventures offers some great patient services - but we also staff some amazing people behind the scenes who are working day in and day out to keep the business wheels turning.  Marisa Yelle, the Office Manager, runs the day-to-day administration tasks and manages the administrative staff, while Kim Dragon keeps your dollars in check as the Billing Administrative Assistant. Both of these young women are a vital part of our team; but interestingly enough, they are also a staple in each others lives. With a friendship beginning at the age of 5, these two ladies are a force to be reckoned with at our Kenmore office.  Please enjoy reading their responses to 10 unique questions!
