Griffin Leoni
Operations Manager

I joined Level Up as a behavioral health technician, with a purpose to help individuals find a healthy solution to everyday challenges. One of my motivating factors for joining this field, was to give back what was given to me. I too, suffered with similar battles that our clients face daily. I knew when I came on board to LU, we had a similar goal in mind. To help those find a better meaning in life and to live up to their fullest potential. Through hard work, determination, and client care, I was able to step into multiple leadership roles that eventually led me to Operations Manager. In my time with the company, I have seen individuals transform their lives, smile for the first time in years and above all, become the true version of themselves through our program.
