Executive Leadership

Deana Sewell, Founder and CEO

Deana started her career running operations in the retail industry. She then moved into banking where she was hired as a Bank Officer at First National Bank & Trust to manage daily branch operations.

While at First National, Deana helped a friend get financial assistance from insurance for his son with autism. Working through the insurance company’s appeal process, Deana was able to get the denial for coverage overturned and the child’s therapy covered. Deana was introduced to other families seeking help navigating the insurance process to get coverage for their children’s autism therapy. Deana developed a passion for helping families fight for insurance coverage for children with autism and eventually left her job to start Missing Piece Billing & Consulting.

Today Missing Piece is the leader in outsourced billing services for ABA therapy and other behavior health providers across the U.S. Deana is nationally considered an expert in the field of ABA billing and is contacted by ABA providers, consultants, and even insurance providers for her opinion on complex billing and reimbursement topics. Deana and the team at Missing Piece continue to fight for families and their children who cannot bear the massive financial burden of raising a child with autism.
