Joanna Hunt, NP

Joanna is a Nurse Practitioner who started her nursing career twelve years ago. She has been a neonatal and NICU nurse for most of her career. She graduated from Walden University with a Master of Science in Nursing in 2017. The time she spent caring for her patients in the nursery and neonatal intensive care unit blended naturally into the practice of pediatrics after she completed her Nurse Practitioner degree. She is a skilled teacher and loves to share her knowledge with her patients and their families. Joanna grew up in Alabama. She recently moved to Arizona and is excited to join the Valley of the Sun Pediatrics team. She is married to her husband Kenyon and they have three children, Isaiah, Tegan, and Sadie. She enjoys spending time with her family, hiking, spending time outdoors, and crocheting. Joanna looks forward to many years of caring for children in our community at Valley of the Sun Pediatrics.
