Our Nurse Extraordinaire

Leni Duran, RN, Program Director

Leni’s professional journey began as a Certified Recreational Therapist. She first worked with children and later with adults in rehabilitation/skilled nursing before venturing into a Geriatric Psychiatry Unit. This is where she discovered her true passion for serving older adults. After 10+ years, Leni went back to school and became a Registered Nurse and worked in Neurology. Upon the opening of Tucson Medical Center’s Geropsychiatric Unit she served there as an RN for several years followed by a next chapter in outpatient Wound Care. Now, Leni has returned to working alongside older adults as program director for The Hacienda at the Canyon and she’s thrilled to be here doing her part to help all Canyon members thrive.
