Linina Zocchi, a Northwest Native, has always had a special place in her heart for helping others and chose the path of nursing after a family member's passing. She graduated from Pacific Lutheran University with her Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 1997 and spent the majority of her RN career in cardiology/telemetry. In 2003 she graduated from Arizona State University with her Master of Science in Nursing, specializing in Adult Health. She started her Nurse Practitioner career at Desert Pain Institute in Mesa, Arizona before returning home in 2005. She worked for PeaceHealth in Longview and then transferred to Southwest Washington Medical Center where she continued to specialize in helping people with chronic and acute pain. Through-out this time she has been blessed with multiple opportunities to learn about complimentary and alternative medicine which she has become passionate about learning, teaching and offering her patients. She has found approaching patients with an individual, holistic manner is much more effective. She was very excited to join Dr. Mickel and his team at Integrated Pain Solutions in order to continue pursuing those goals for patient care. Linina is married, has 2 daughters and a dog. She loves to garden, hike, read, coach soccer and spend time with her family.
