Leanna is the clinical training director at the Neurologic Music Therapy Services of Arizona. Leanna attended Appalachian State University for her undergraduate degree, and completed her Master's Degree through Colorado State University. Having been exposed to a lot of GIM-style music therapy in her undergrad, she was excited to eventually learn about Neurologic music therapy and how it can be implemented. She worked at a company called Life in Harmony Music Therapy, LLC from 2016-2019, and then started working for NMTSA at the end of 2019. In her spare time she provides a few private piano lessons, guitar lessons, adaptive lessons, and private client sessions through her side gig: Moore Than Music.
Leanna feels blessed to be married to her best friend and high school sweetheart Billy. Together they have two dogs and a cat, and their first baby was born a few weeks after recording this interview! Outside of music she loves to run, hike, travel, eat, read, and spend time with family and friends.
