EDMOND, Okla. – The human body has always fascinated Lauren Kamp, which is why she chose a career in medicine.
“The human body is an intricate and wonderful miracle,” she said. “I chose the medical field because I love critical thinking and the challenge medicine provides, and I also love building relationships and helping people in their most vulnerable time of need.”
Kamp recently joined Mercy Clinic’s primary care office on Santa Fe Avenue in Edmond. In her new role, she looks forward to listening to patients and empowering them to make choices that will improve their health.
“I think all people just want to be heard and respected, which is what I strive for in my practice,” she said. “Empathy, compassion and trust are all components that I want to cultivate in my relationship with patients.”
Kamp received her bachelor’s degree in nursing from Oklahoma Baptist University in Shawnee, Oklahoma, and her master’s degree in nursing from the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City. She has prior experience as a registered nurse in the pediatric intensive care unit and neonatal intensive care unit at The Children’s Hospital at the University of Oklahoma Medical Center, and as a labor and delivery nurse.
In her spare time, she serves on the Innovative Board for The Children’s Hospital Foundation and recently joined Junior League of Oklahoma City. She loves volunteer work and staying active in the community. She also enjoys cycling, reading, cooking and running, and is currently training for her first half marathon.
