Meet Kathryn Zug
Kathryn is the Founder and CEO of Practice Solutions, a medical billing company for the mental and behavioral health industry. She works with different therapists across the country making sure that they have healthy practice revenue and can focus on care. She started her career with a bachelor’s degree in pre-counseling with the hopes of becoming a therapist herself, but that plan took a turn when she spent a couple years in downtown Chicago’s financial world working at a Private Equity Firm. From there she took her passion for the mental health world and combined it with her passion for healthy business. Today she spends all her energy growing and innovating her company to meet the needs of therapists country-wide.

Jeremy grew up in the Pacific Northwest where he discovered his passion for people. He decided to go to college in Chicago to further develop his skills working with people and pursue a degree in counseling. While in Chicago he worked for a group practice as a practice biller and marketing manager. This initiated his desire to pursue learning about the business of Private Practice, particularly medical billing. He now lives in Michigan with his wife of 3 years.
