Dr. Valenzuela was born and raised in Arizona. She has wanted to be a pediatrician since she was a child herself. Her baby sister was born when she was 4 years old and having the chance to go pick her up at the hospital was truly an inspirational moment. There were so many babies in the nursery! She dedicated her efforts to becoming a pediatrician and in 2005 her dream came true when she graduated from residency. She went to the same residency program as Dr. Khurana at Phoenix Children’s Hospital/Maricopa Medical Center. She has worked at several practices around the Valley since then and is happy to call Healing Hearts home since March of 2023.
She loves music, particularly rock and roll. She is married and has 2 teenage children. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her husband and kids. She also likes going to see family in Oracle, Tucson, and Yuma when she gets the chance.
