Leanna Anderson

Clinical Manager of Counseling and Integrative Services

Joined Hospice of the Northwest in 2006 

Leanna has worked as a medical social worker in a variety of healthcare settings. She has experience working with patients in long-term care, oncology, hospital, home health, and hospice. She has also been in leadership roles for the last 25 years.  

Leanna received her Bachelor’s in Social Work from the Concordia University of Portland and her Master’s in Social Work from Eastern Washington University.  

Leanna found her way to hospice beginning as a hospice volunteer in the 1980s. She fell in love with the difference in care that hospice provides as opposed to other settings and specialties. Leanna is passionate about Hospice care that is person-centered and holistic. She is committed to Hospice of the Northwest, from its mission, its people, and its vision to provide the best care to their patients.  

In her spare time, Leanna enjoys gardening (including naturalized landscaping), hiking, and spending time with her family.
