Elizabeth (Kelley) Zinka, FNP
Family Nurse Practitioner
Kelley Zinka was inspired to become a family nurse practitioner after seeing the long-term impact of uncontrolled hypertension, diabetes, and other diseases on patients and their families. She decided she wanted to do more than nurse people through illness. She wanted to help them prevent and control conditions before they became serious
Today, Kelley is passionate about supporting patients as they become the healthiest and happiest version of themselves. She enjoys building open and honest relationships with patients and working with them to create wellness plans. She believes that patients benefit when they have a provider who listens closely, offers encouragement and reassurance during setbacks, and celebrates their successes with them.
Kelley earned a bachelor of science in nursing from Washington State University in Pullman. She earned her family nurse practitioner degree from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.
Kelley is an avid hiker and spent a summer in college working as the lead sales associate for the Old Faithful Inn Gift Shop in Yellowstone, devoting all of her downtime to exploring the hidden side of the park. Today she enjoys spending time with her husband and daughter, and hiking and biking in the Columbia River Gorge.
