Adriana Zamora was born in Lima, Peru, lived in California and then moved to Washington when she was a junior in high school. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Health Care Administration from Southern Illinois University and then from the University of Washington Medex PA program. During that time, she was also a U.S. Army medic, 4 years active, 4 years in the U.S. Army Reserves.
She knew she wanted to be in Family Medicine after her rotation at the Community Health Clinic in Quincy, WA. She loved seeing patients, supporting them through an acute illness, managing their chronic conditions and getting to know them as people. It was also a privilege to get to know their families, building relationships and becoming their go-to resource when it came to their health.
She’s been a PA-C for 6 years and can still say honestly that she loves what she does! The decision to go back to school after working in sales for years was one of the best she has ever made.
She currently mentors a high school student through the Harbor Hope Center. In her spare time, she loves traveling, trying new experiences, spending time with family and friends and making memories. She also loves spending time with her nieces and nephews, who enrich her life and make her heart full.
