Traci Ann Vopalensky is a board-certified nurse practitioner who joined AZ Pain Doctors in 2019. She was drawn towards pain management because it can have a profound effect on a patient’s quality of life and functionality. She feels that the complexity of creating a comprehensive treatment plan based on each patient is especially rewarding and she believes in utilizing different modalities to treat a patient’s pain condition.
She started her healthcare career in 2013 after receiving her BSN from Grand Canyon University. As a registered nurse, she specialized in cardiac surgical care, vascular care, advanced heart failure, and mechanical circulatory support. She also spent time working as an RN Clinical Manager before obtaining her Master of Science in Nursing and became a Family Nurse Practitioner in 2018.
When she is not working, she enjoys spending time with her family and four dogs, reading, and cooking.
