Nurse Practitioner located in Phoenix, AZ

About Leanne Muniz

Born in Pennsylvania, I moved to Phoenix in 1986 with my family when my father's job brought us to the area. I remained in the Phoenix area until graduating high school. At that time I moved to the Prescott area. I continued my education at Yavapai Community College. I obtained certification as an Emergency Medical Technician - Basic and began working for the local ambulance service responding to 911 calls. Very quickly I returned to the classroom to become an Advanced Life Support provider. After several years in this role I decided to again further my education and returned to Yavapai Community College to obtain my Associates Degree in Nursing. During this time I was able to work in the Emergency Department as a Patient Care Tech. Upon graduating with my ADN I was immediately offered a position as an RN in the same department. I remained there for the next 4 years at which time I returned to the Valley of the Sun, again working in the Emergency Department. Once again I returned to school to obtain a Bachelors of Science in Nursing Degree and eventually my Masters of Science in Nursing - Family Nurse Practitioner from Chamberlain University.

In total I have spent 13 years working in the Emergency Department. It was here I saw first hand the number of people turning to medications for pain relief and the ill effects associated with them. As a chronic migraine sufferer myself, I understand the need for treatment options that don't involve taking daily medications and then managing the side effects that are associated with them. For me, this is when I began to seek out other modalities of treatment such as chiropractic, physical therapy and trigger point injections. It was during these treatments that I developed a better understanding of their role as treatment options and grew to fully understand their value.

Naturally when the opportunity for me to begin working at Arizona Pain Relief presented itself I was overjoyed! I am excited to be a part of a team that helps people on a daily basis to reduce or alleviate their pain and once again regain their quality of life.

When not working I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling and doing anything that involves spending time enjoying the Arizona sun!
