Our Core Values
leslie graves

Leslie Graves

Leslie Graves is the owner and founder of Pintler Billing Services, LLC. Established in 2001, Pintler Billing Services was created out of a desire to provide quality medical billing services to Montana health care providers. From the beginning Leslie has focused on customer service and professionalism, and as a result Pintler Billing Services has grown steadily to serve over 25 EMS clients throughout Montana. To maintain this high-quality service, Leslie earned her CAC (Certified Ambulance Coder) credentials, and ensured that each of her staff also obtained the certification, along with required continuing education classes each year. She is a member of NAAC (National Academy of Ambulance Coders), HBMA (Healthcare Business Management Association), a member of University of Montana Alumni Association, and a member of the local Chamber of Commerce. Leslie pursues all educational opportunities regarding medical billing and the EMS industry that will enhance her ability to provide a quality service to her clients.

Leslie graduated from University of Montana in 1998 (BA History). She lives in Eureka, Montana with her husband and children, and spends most of her free time with her family, riding horses, cheering on the Eureka Lions sports teams and Griz football team, and enjoying the beautiful Tobacco Valley and surrounding areas.

As more and more healthcare administration services are outsourced to large companies in other states or overseas, Leslie is proud to own a company that employs Montanans, and caters to Montana providers on a personal level.
