Executive Team

Marnie Cabezas

Chief Executive Officer

In the early 90s, our CEO, Marnie Cabezas, began her career as a midwife. While helping new moms bring babies into the world, she noticed that she and her colleagues were having trouble getting reimbursed for their work, so, in 1998, she purchased Midwife’s Billing Service, Inc. Armed with a powerful will and a desire to help midwives receive fair compensation for their invaluable services, Marnie conquered the ins and out of billing, coding, and contracting while riding the rollercoaster of ever-changing rules and technologies—from the early days of HIPAA, working with MS-DOS and dot matrix printers, up through today’s powerful clearinghouses, portals, and EHRs.

Her business has been growing steadily through all the industry changes, and, in 2016, Marnie decided that to better showcase that the company was open to all independent medical practitioners, changing the name to Innovation Billing Service, Inc. was a natural result of the continued growth and services offered.

It is said that being a medical practitioner—someone who cares for others—is a calling. The skills, time, and energy required to do the job well deserve both respect and the compensation to go along with it, which is why Marnie feels so strongly about ensuring reimbursement for all who are called upon to care for others.

Sharon Cole

Chief Financial Officer

Sharon joined Innovation in October 2014 to take on the business and financial side of the company, monitoring business performance, overseeing budgets, developing financial models, and helping Marnie with management and strategic planning. Sharon comes to us from thirteen years in the world of finance and a background in small business consulting and psychotherapy billing.

Kristin Young

Chief Information Officer

Kristin first came to Innovation in January 2010 as a college freshman and spent four years of school breaks in the office before settling in full-time in June 2013. Kristin considers herself Innovation’s Jack of All Trades—or perhaps Jill of All Trades is more apt—she designs custom reports, meddles with the website, and coaxes stubborn technology. Kristin also obtained her Certified Professional Compliance Officer certificate in April 2016 in order to serve as a more informed point of contact on compliance issues.
