About Lynda Heaphy, FNP-C
I moved to Phoenix from San Francisco in my teens with my family. I won’t ever forget my initial introduction to Phoenix getting off the plane in the middle of July. The blast of heat was something I had never experienced. My husband is from Montana. We met at St. Joseph Hospital where he was going to school. I can’t say I’m fond of the summers here after all these years, but home is where our family lives. We raised our two children here, and now we especially love watching our granddaughter grow.
As a nurse, I’ve spent many years working in hospitals. I’ve worked in a variety of different intensive care units in the valley and also in Bullhead City. It was both challenging and rewarding caring for critically ill patients. While I enjoyed those years, now I prefer being at the other end of the spectrum & preventing some of those hospitalizations.
In my spare time, on the weekends, I enjoy working in my vegetable garden these days. It’s rewarding watching my plants flourish & grow. Likewise I hope to be a part of helping my patients grow and stay as healthy as possible.
