After participating in a family member's hospice experience, Leanna Babb left a 10-year business career behind to enroll in nursing school at Arizona Western College. Her healthcare career has been very rewarding because she loves to teach and learn. Nursing is a place where she gets to do both all the time.
After completing her Master of Science in Nursing and licensing as a nurse practitioner, Leanna chose to provide gastroenterology specialty care. She loves working in digestive health because she can often help patients find and fix the cause of their problems.
In her life outside of work, Leanna and her husband spend their time raising their five children and coaching the Yuma Young Guns competitive shotgun shooting team.
