Dr. Elena Zinkov, founder of Proactive Health, is passionate about helping people live an active, vibrant, and healthy life. Her definition of health is shaped by twenty plus years as a competitive athlete. She grew up as a competitive tennis player and quickly learned the power of prevention using nutrition and fitness. Her love for the outdoors and a lifestyle on the go has translated into skiing, climbing, running, biking, and hiking all over the Pacific Northwest, the neighboring states, and internationally.
Before pursuing a degree in medicine, Dr. Elena earned her business degree from University of Washington’s Foster School of Business. Soon after, she completed her doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University, and naturally, she was drawn to pain management and nutrition as a way to help her patients enjoy the activities they love to do pain free.
Dr. Elena has built a lifestyle and career path on a foundation of healthy living, with a focus on maintaining a sense of well-being in a fast-paced culture. She views food as medicine, and strives to make the two pillars of good health—nutrition and fitness—accessible to all. She believes in an individualized approach when it comes to helping others achieve optimal performance. Looking at the whole person, she is able to create unique solutions to meet the goals of professionals and athletes alike.
